ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has constituted three more cabinet committees on economic affairs, including one on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), as the new government starts discussions on re-prioritising CPEC projects.
The Cabinet Division has formed Cabinet Committee on CPEC (CCOCPEC), Cabinet Committee on Privatisation (CCOP) and Cabinet Committee on Energy (CCOE). Unlike former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, Imran has appointed Minister for Petroleum Ghulam Sarwar Khan as the chairman of CCOE.
He has not only delegated powers to the federal ministers concerned to head these bodies, but has also made sure that the finance minister does not become as powerful as former finance minister Ishaq Dar was. The premier has given the chairmanship as per job description.
