He visited the Port Qasim Electric Power Company where he got a detailed briefing about the power plant. Speaking on the occasion, the governor said China and Qatar jointly made investments worth US$ 3 billion in the project, which now makes up for 13 percent of the country’s overall power needs. Governor Ismail said there are numerous investment opportunities in the country, dubbing the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) the backbone of the national economy. Imran Ismail said any country is welcome to make investments under the project and added the country has the capacity to produce more electricity than it needed.
