PESHAWAR: The Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) chief minister expressed his reservations on Monday over the federal government denying security clearance to Chinese investors coming to the province.
“I will personally approach the Centre to address this issue”, Pervaiz Khattak said while chairing a meeting at the CM House, Peshawar.
The related authorities were asked to approach the quarters concerned for immediate security clearance to facilitate the Chinese investors coming to the province for realising the memorandums of understanding (MoUs) into agreements.
He hoped for the achievement of a positive response on the MoUs for projects under CPEC.
“The development of K-P would directly lead to prosperity of Fata and entire country,” he said while elaborating on the importance of Chinese investment in the area.
The progress on the MoUs signed with foreign investment in education, health, tourism, agriculture, mines, minerals, energy and transport was also reviewed.
Khattak also underlined the need for ensuring adequate facilities of security, health, hygiene and other civic amenities under safe city and small city policies of the provincial government; while asking the concerned authorities to finalise the residential projects of Peshawar Model Town and Karnal Sher CPEC City.
