The Government of Pakistan has acceded to pay an amount of $ 2. $58 million in compensation to the families of five Chinese nationals who perished in a suicide bombing attack in March as stated on Friday.

Pakistan Economic Coordination Committee has taken this decision on Thursday. The top finance ministry source said that each of the five Chinese families will be given $516,000 as a ‘goodwill’.

The Chinese workers who were employed by the China Gezhouba Group construction company were attacked on 26th March when a suicide bomber detonated an explosive-laden vehicle close to their car in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. The attack also claimed the life of their Pakistani driver.

The couple was heading towards the site of the Dasu Hydroelectric power project which is a part of $ 60 billion CPEC or the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

At the moment, many Chinese nationals work on different projects connected with CPEC in Pakistan, and their number is thousands. However, several have been attacked in the recent past by militants who are against the exploitation of the natural resources in the country.

This was stated just before PM Shehbaz Sharif is set to visit Beijing next month when he will attempt to move the CPEC forward after the project remained largely stagnant and problematic for the last few years.

According to Pakistani officials, the move will help mend the economic ties that have been affected by the attack since China is a critical economic partner and investor.
