Pakistan In Focus - Pakistan's Economic Times - Prime minister presents proposals for expansion of China's belt and road initiative.

Prime Minister Imran Khan has urged world leaders to undertake joint efforts to address impediments in the way of sustainable global growth.

In his address at the 2nd Belt and Road Forum in Beijing on Friday, the prime minister presented five ways to further expand China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

"Firstly, we must undertake joint efforts to mitigate climate change. In our Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, we successfully planted a billion trees. I suggest we launch a joint project to plant 100 billion trees over the next two years, so that we can mitigate the effects of climate change for our coming generations," said PM Imran.

"Second, we should establish a BRI Tourism Corridor to promote people-to-people contacts and inter-cultural understanding. Thirdly, an office of Anti-Corruption Cooperation should be set up to combat the scourge of white-collar crime. White-collar crimes are devastating the world."
