President Alvi’s visit featured workable benefits of neighbors’ all-weather friendship

BEIJING, 18 March 2020, TON : Pakistani President Dr. Arif Alvi’s recent visit to Beijing weighted with rich benefits and symbolized mutual benefits for both the countries.

As the nations of the world are worried about tackling a new pandemic of Coronavirus, Pakistan and China are thinking ahead. For official visits by foreign leaders, timing always matters. But particularly now, as countries all over the world are preoccupied with self-defense amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, and national leaders are, by and large, avoiding international trips, according to an article published by China Daily on Wednesday.

China and Pakistan had high ties and strong mutual bonds. Chinese investment in economic and trade sector benefiting both the countries.

Bilateral ties are so good, at both the government-to-government and people-to-people levels, that official statements here refer to Pakistan as an “all-weather friend”, the man on the street calls it “ba tie”, meaning there’s an ironclad bond that could not be better.

At this time of struggle, President Alvi offered valuable moral support to China and expressed appreciation of what it has contributed to the global campaign to contain the ongoing pandemic.

As China realizes control over the outbreak at home, Pakistan is witnessing a continuous rise in infections. How China has responded to the outbreak and what it has learned from it can provide useful insight into Pakistan’s own endeavors to bring the virus under control. And as work and production resume in China, Beijing will be better equipped to provide Pakistan with what it needs.

The series of memorandums signed in Beijing, under the framework of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, portend a solid step forward in bilateral economic cooperation, which will in turn raise overall relations to a higher level.

CPEC China- Pakistan economic corridor will pave the way to economic, agricultural and trade cooperation not only between China and Pakistan but also attract the world leaders to make investment in CPEC projects.  President Allvi’s visit is of great significance for long term practical benefits for both the neighboring countries.
