The offer was made to Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah in a meeting with Governor Wei Hong in Chengdu on Wednesday, says a press release issued by the Pakistan embassy in Beijing.

In the talks, Shah was leading a delegation, which had been invited to come and attend the 14th Western China International Fair.

Hong said China had rich experience in the areas of mining, agriculture and water management and the Sindh government could benefit from it.

Qaim Ali Shah, while highlighting the potential Sindh offers for Chinese investment, said there was a vast scope of investment in Thar coal mining, wind and solar-based alternative energy generation. He invited Hong to visit the Sindh province and see the investment avenues there.

The governor informed the Sindh delegation that the exhibition had emerged as the most important event that showcased developments in western China in front of the world. In the exhibition, 72 countries and regions were participating, he said.

Deputy Secretary General of Sichuan Provincial People’s Government, Li Jiaguo, also met the Sindh chief minister and the delegation. Speaking on the occasion, Shah asked Chinese investors to take advantage of the immense investment opportunities that the province offered.

Li said Sichuan province had a strong economic base, besides robust agriculture and water management system. The province also had vast experience in mining with cutting-edge technology. He assured Shah of collaboration in all these areas.

Later, the chief minister visited the Hi-tech Industrial Zone in Chengdu, which ranked fifth among 53 hi-tech zones in China. It aims to position Chengdu as an equally modern business centre and high-end industrial town. Courtesy  Express Tribune
