QUETTA: The Balochistan government is paying special attention to development of the fisheries sector while keeping in view the importance of province’s coastal areas after completion of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

Chief Minister Nawab Sanaullah Khan Zehri said this on Monday to leaders of the fishing community of Makran division.

He said the Pasni Fish Harbour, which had been closed for the past 10 years, had been made functional in two months. “Around 2,400 fishermen are availing facilities there,” he said. The Commander of the Southern Command, Lt Gen Aamir Riaz, promised to make available all facilities to fishermen to improve their living standard.

The chief secretary called for submission of a feasibility report for development projects in Pasni.
