BEIJING, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- Chinese and Pakistani businesses are looking forward to enhanced economic cooperation for shared benefits.

The two countries have much to partner in fields like agriculture, manufacturing and energy, and Chinese entrepreneurs are welcome to invest and do businesses in Pakistan, Abdul Razzak Dawood, who serves as an advisor to the Pakistani Prime Minister, said at a symposium held Tuesday on trade and investment cooperation opportunities between the two countries.

Chinese mobile payment and e-commerce firms are welcome to expand into Pakistan as the country is seeking to develop e-commerce, he added.

China and Pakistan are all-weather strategic cooperative partners, and the two countries' cooperation on joint development of the Belt and Road Initiative has brought concrete benefits to the two peoples, said Gao Yan, head of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade.

Enterprises of the two countries should seize the opportunities of China's deepening of reform and opening-up to carry out practical exchanges and achieve more cooperation results, Gao said.
