BEIJING - China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) Tuesday donated 1 million Chinese Yuan for the flood affected people of Pakistan.
The Vice President of CRBC Liu Hong while handing over the Cheque to Ambassador Masood Khan at the Pakistan Embassy said that the Chinese people and government received the tragedy with sorrow that “caused great loss to Pakistani people and also broke our hearts.”
The disaster would not stop the resilient and brave Pakistani people’s march for pursuing economic prosperity.
He said that last year his organization donated US$ 150,000 to Pakistan Prime Minister’s Flood Relief Fund.
“Through years of co-operation in different projects, CRBC has already cultivated deep friendship with Pakistan,’ Liu observed.
He said that we are very proud and honoured that CRBC could participate in the Karakorum Highway (KKH) improvement project that connects China and Pakistan with economic, political and strategic importance.
