Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan on Sunday lauded the inclusion of Karachi’s coastal development plan in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and said the move would bring the city on a par with developed port cities of the world.
Calling the initiative a “game-changer”, the prime minister (PM) through his official social media account on Twitter said the coastal development project would clean up marine habitat for fishermen and develop 20,000 low-income housing units, besides presenting opportunities for investors.
The tweet from the prime minister came a day before his planned one-day visit to Karachi on Monday.
During his stay in Karachi, the prime minister would attend a number of meetings at Governor House, besides inaugurating a part of the Karachi Circular Railways (KCR) project.
The Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (Ecnec) had on Friday approved elimination of 22 level crossings for the loop section of KCR to help free movement of trains.
