Umar Hayat Khan, staff reporter with Independent News of Pakistan, talks about his view on China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative with China Plus.

The Pakistani reporter praises Chinese President Xi Jinping's vision to promote the global economy, saying the Belt and Road Initiative is reshaping the Euro-Asia concept thanks to Xi's efforts to strengthen connectivity and cooperation between Europe, Asia and even Africa. 

According to Umar Hayat Khan, China is investing 51 billion dollars to support Pakistan in local infrastructure construction, agricultural development, poverty alleviation, tourism cooperation and educational exchanges (people-to-people communication), among which the energy sector is a highlight. 

He regards China's investment in local energy sector, which involves 35 billion dollars and more than 10,000 megawatt energy projects, as the most important aspect of the Belt and Road Initiative for Pakistani people, suggesting this support will help improve the overall living standards in Pakistan. 

Khan holds a long-term vision for the result of the Chinese B&R Initiative, saying Pakistani people will benefit more from the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor in the coming 5 or 10 years, the outcome of which, he believes, will prove the initiative to be a win-win strategy.
