Stating that the work on the Rs35 billion fiber-optic cable laying project under has been completed in Gilgit-Baltistan, Rehman said an alternate communication system to the region will be provided by it.

He claimed that work on the Karakoram Highway had been completed whereas the construction on other sections is under way.

The Chief Minister said Land acquisition has also been completed with Rs10 billion less than the original amount for construction of the Diamer-Bhasha Dam.

Asserting that areas bordering have a potential to generate 60,000 mega-watts electricity, he said that a joint power company will be established under Chinese power investment programme to tap these opportunities.

"This will add 60,000MW to the national grid, which will cost Rs2 per megawatt or less," Rehman said.
