MOUI with China

Unfortunately MOUS with China have not progressed beyond that stage at all while India-China trade has jumped to more than 65 Billion. Unless we are serious NO country can help regardless of the brotherly intentions China harbors, except for Defence cooperation which Pakistan has no choice on thanks to the Western blockade on any hi tech imports of weaponry, PAKISTNA and China while calling themselves friends are friends only in words, reality is that business volumes have not progressed and no meaningful investment from China has been approved, Gawader is just starting, Coal in Sindh remains untapped, no major investment from China has been green-lighted in the energy sector either. In defence, yes, relations are warm thanks to the STABILITY which our armed forced bring to the table regardless of the chaos in political arenas. Pakistan must cement a business relationship with China to move forward, economic prowess is the new military might wars are no longer fought head on, businesses are sabotaged in countries to remove funding for military projects its a simple strategy which Pakistan has still not caught up to. India does not have to take us head on in a conflict anymore, they are already damming our waters, extracting economic benehefits from Pakistan's resources and most of all have moved forward in economic terms where they simply have the capacity to wait us out of existance. Nawaz shareef is aluded for improving relations with them has to come on EQUAL TERMS. Bangladesh signed pacts with them on unequal terms and look where they landed, a fake ecomony, a market for only india goods, and exports dependent on textiles other words, a bubble ready to be burst by a needle at anytime. Pakistan cannot repeat these mistakes, we have to get honesty in government and do whats best for Pakistan specially for investments in energy sector and export growth, 2 basic ingredient which are required to move forwad.

Only China's help and Iran gas pipe line are hope

Turning away from China will be national suicide. China today produces half of world's steel and half of world's coal. China is the number one producer of cars and electricity in the world( 19 million cars produced a year in China compared to 8 or 9 mpy in America or Japan and 5 billion megawatt power per year in China compared to 4.5 billion mega watt py in America). China is fast approaching the biggest item that is oil refining and once that is done it will be all China world. So, Pakistan stands getting sincere and serious help from China. Turning to India or any other big nation will ruin all hopes and Pak energy crisis will turn much worse. Iran gas pipe line is very crucial and any drift away from that already signed project to appease Saudis will hurt Pakistan's energy hopes into misery for all Paks in terms of power outages. Nawaz Sharif will have to adopt sincere policies with respect to China and Iran.
