It was reported on Tuesday that the Imran Khan-led Pakistan government was reviewing the agreements under the CPEC project.
Citing a report from UK-based Financial Times, top officials said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)-led government would be looking to renegotiate the trade pact signed with Beijing a decade ago.
Mr Khan had recently established a nine-member committee to analyse the $62 billion project which reportedly gave “undue advantages to Chinese companies,” Pakistan’s daily The Express Tribune reported.
Pakistan and China, in a four-hour meeting on Sunday led by Pakistan’s Minister for Planning Makhdoom Khusro Bakhtiar and National Development and Reforms Commission (NDRC) of China vice-chairman Ning Jizhe, decided to add social sector and regional development schemes to the existing portfolio of CPEC projects.
