The prime minister also addressed a ceremony at the occasion, where he said that every kind of facility will be provided to assist the joint project.
The joint projects under the CPEC are a positive sign, adding that it is recommended that more coal is brought from Thar to be utilised for this power plant, said PM.
He said, “there are 6,000 Pakistani engineers working in the project.”
