He said the projects of CPEC would be launched in all the four provinces as Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif wanted development of the entire country. To a question, he said the working group for industrial zones would be constituted in next two months with the consultation of all the four provinces. He said the project of Peshawar to Karachi Motorway would also be completed by the end of 2018.
