ISLAMABAD: (HRNW) Minister for Planning, Development, and Special Initiatives Asad Umar has dispelled the impression of slowing down the pace of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects, saying that the major work of the CPEC projects was completed during the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) government.

In the first phase, two major sectors, power and infrastructure, were under main focus, he said, adding: “Power projects with installed capacity of 3,340MW were completed during the previous government, while 5,864MW projects were completed during the present government’s tenure.”

Apart from it, Umar said the work on another 1,824MW projects had also been started recently that would be completed after the tenure of the present government.

In the infrastructure and road sector, the minister said the PML-N government had completed 394 kilometers long motorways and highways under CPEC, while the present government had so far completed 413km of the motorways and highways.
