LAHORE: Lahore Chamber of Commerce & Industry (LCCI) Thursday welcomed Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa’s pledge to make China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) a success.
In a joint statement issued here, LCCI President Abdul Basit, Senior Vice President Amjad Ali Jawa and Vice-President Muhammad Nasir Hameed Khan said that the government’s and military’s commitment to CPEC had given an obvious message to the anti-Pakistan elements and made it clear that no conspiracy against this project would be tolerated. “Government and military deserve appreciation for safeguarding the interests of Pakistan and for laying a new foundation of progress and prosperity in the country,” the LCCI office-bearers added. They said that not only Pakistan but the whole region would benefit from CPEC. They said that timely completion of CPEC would start a new era of development and prosperity in the country.
