ISLAMABAD, Dec 2 (APP): Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has directed the National Highway Authority (NHA) to immediately examine the feasibility of construction of Bajor(Khar)-Jandola-Zhob link so as to connect it with the Western alignment of China-
Pakistan Economic Corridor.
National Highway Authority may also consult the FATA Secretariat to benefit from any existing work that they may have already done in this behalf, said a statement issued by the Prime Minister House here on Wednesday. The Prime Minister said that a status report in the matter should be furnished within a period of two weeks, positively.
The Prime Minister said that as normalcy returns to the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) of Pakistan, it is important to open them up to the rest of the country, particularly
to the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor routes; with a view to
enable them to reap the benefits of potential economic progress.
Development of such strategic linkages and infrastructure will
provide the crucial immediate lift to development efforts in the
tribal areas, the Prime Minister added.
