ISLAMABAD - China will come up with increased level of cooperation with Pakistan as the leadership in Beijing is taking major decisions at the ongoing national ‘two sessions’ to strengthen relationships with the regional states especially in terms of economy and peace, China Economic Net reported on Sunday.

The “Two Sessions” of the National People’s Congress (NPC) and the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) are held as scheduled in Beijing.

The high-level opening up is keeping pace with the times because the world economy has entered a new period of higher-level cooperation and competition. The China-Pakistan bilateral cooperation would also follow this trend, the report said. In the long run, China’s high-level opening up will facilitate China-Pakistan.  It will contribute to a shift of Pakistani geo-economics and the economic security agenda. Pakistan now is striving to transfer its focus on geopolitics and traditional security. The best choice for Pakistan is to “looking to China”, fully exploring the dividends of China-Pakistan “all-weather friendship”.

As an important neighbour of China, Pakistan will definitely benefit from China’s burgeoning market. China will be deeply engaged in international cooperation in the new areas including green and low-carbon development and digital economy, which are also high on the agenda of Pakistan.

As Pakistani Ambassador to China Moin ul Haque said, the “Two Sessions” are “very important because China is an important country, the second-largest economy in the world. So whatever decisions are taken in these sessions can have not only an impact on the Chinese economy but also on the global economy”.

When it comes to the China-Pakistan cooperation, we can get a lot of useful information from the annual government work report 2022, in which the key word “high-level opening up” is very important, he said.
