Stratfor: Pakistan, China: Countries Launch Joint Online Platform for Agriculture and Industry
Thu January, 2021, Age: 1 year
China and Pakistan launched the “China-Pakistan Economic Corridor”, a series of infrastructure projects and development throughout Pakistan, in 2013. Yesterday, the two parties buttressed their Economic Corridor by launching an online platform that allows information about developments in the agricultural and industrial sectors to be easily disseminated. The online platform will consist of business forums, webinars, job-boards, and other features that will help enhance bilateral economic cooperation. Today the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor is valued at approximately $60 billion.
As Pakistan continues to strengthen its ties with China, it will likely continue to fray its contentious relationship with India, who is vying with China for control over large portions of their shared border.
