ISLAMABAD - A renowned Economist Mirza Ikhtiyar Baig has said the decision of the government to set up a China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) Authority to upgrade the existing structure for speedy and focused execution of the projects was a positive move.

The investment will be made in various small and medium-sized industrial sectors. We must avail the opportunity of foreign direct investment in different projects in Pakistan, he added.

Many countries are willing to be part of this mega project, she added.
