ISLAMABAD - Minister for Finance and Planning, Dr Shamshad Akhtar Sunday reiterated Pakistan's commitment to the mega project of China Pakistan Economic Corridor saying that CPEC was key to the future of Pakistan’s development and prosperity.

"There is complete consensus among all institutions and political forces in the country and we will continue to ensure that all projects of CPEC are completed according to the agreed terms and within the stipulated timelines," Dr Shamshad said in a statement issued here.
