In the recent meeting between the Chief Minister of Punjab, Shahbaz Sharif and Chinese vice Premier, Zhang Gaoli, it was agreed that effective measures will be taken to promote contacts between Pakistan Muslim League-N and the Communist Party of China. 

Pak-China friendship has become stronger over the years which is why right from energy projects to transport projects, from the construction of the Gwadar port to China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), China has always supported Pakistan at every stage. Pak-China friendship is not only a sign of unity between the two countries but also that of mutual trust and tolerance. To promote strong and durable relations between Pakistan and China, the Punjab government is also playing an important role. It is hoped that this new era of friendship will prove to be a milestone for the betterment and prosperity of masses on both sides.
