The Sindh Cabinet was told the other day that the Ambassador of Pakistan in China has informed the Sindh government that the provincial government of Hubei has wished to establish a sister-province relationship between Sindh and Hubei province, and a sister relationship between Karachi and Wuhan.

The Wuhan administration has completed its internal procedure to name a prominent square on the riverbank of the Yangtze as the Pakistan-China Friendship Square.

The Karachi administration would also undertake procedures to name a prominent public square/road on a similar pattern as a special gesture of friendship on a reciprocal basis.

It is to note that the provincial cabinet on the recommendations of the heritage committee approved the request of the owner of the building, Homie Katrak Chamber situated on Abdullah Haroon Road, Hoshang Road for addition and alteration of the heritage building.

The compound of the building would remain the same with revival and inside the compound, a 27-floor building would be constructed.
