He said that nations are built with passion and not just intelligence.

The 39.3km Havelian-Mansehra section of the 118km-long Havelian-Thakot motorway will reduce the travel time by up to 2.5 hours between Islamabad and Mansehra.

The premier said the motorway is part of CPEC. “CPEC will benefit the nation,” he said, adding that today, CPEC is not just a road project. It is also providing technical education to our youth, he said.

Speaking about agriculture, the premier said that if we only learn how to utilize water efficiently and learn techniques from China, it would increase production.

He called Pakistan special. “We need to spend on our youth and their education,” he said.
