This is with reference to President Zardari ' s recent visit to China to meet the Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jia Bao for assistance. This was an important meeting because previous investments by China in Pakistan have done wonders. An increasing number of Chinese manufacturers are already operating in Pakistan like the Shenzhen-based telecommunications firm ZTE, Shanghai-based electronic maker SVA, China Mobile and a number of motorcycle companies. With the promised telecommunication satellite delivered to Pakistan, we can surely expect consumers to benefit from minimal telecom rates soon. -HAREEM DEEBA, Karachi, via e-mail, October 20.
