National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser on Wednesday said regional integration and connectivity of states in the region was imperative for tapping the immense economic potential. He said that benefits of the CPEC could only be harvested with integration of the Central Asian with South Asia. The speaker was addressing a dialogue in Islamabad on “Role of Parliament in cementing regional Integration” in context of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). The speaker observed that modern global and regional politics revolved around geo-economics and in that context CPEC, a flagship project of Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) was presenting revolutionary opportunities for regional countries to build strong economic, trade and commercial ties. He said that Pakistan was geographically located at the interface of south and central Asia and the Middle East besides being a neighbour of China and linking landlocked Central Asian States with the rest of the world through CPEC would open new vistas of economic cooperation.
