'PM's China visit opens up new vistas of economic cooperation'

China Says More Talks Needed For Pakistan's Economic Bailout

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's highly-publicised visit to China was marred by a gaffe by state-run PTV broadcasting a speech by him in Beijing with the dateline "Begging", triggering an intense debate on the social media in the country.

During the live telecast of his address at the Central Party School (of the Communist Party of China) on PTV, his location was misspelled from Beijing as - wait for it - begging.

The MD of the channel, Col (R) Hassan Immad Mohammadi, has been removed from his post with immediate effect until further notice, as per an order by the Government of Pakistan. This incident is regrettable.

The faux pas is particularly scathing since Khan is looking to secure support from China to overcome massive economic hurdles in the country. "Strict action has been initiated under rules against concerned officials".

Prime Minister Imran Khan's visit to China from November 2-5 has moved the overall economic relationship between the two friendly countries to the next level, according to a statement issued by the Ministry of Finance (MoF) on Tuesday. In fact, "Begging" started trending.

On Saturday, China said it had agreed to "firmly move forward" with infrastructure projects in Pakistan following meetings between Mr Khan and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang.

In his keynote address at the event, the Pakistan Prime Minister said that the China International Import Expo is expected to help spread the dividends of free trade amongst more closely integrated economies.
