URUMQI - Northwest China's Xinjiang held a forum Tuesday to discuss cooperation on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a major project in China's Belt and Road Initiative.

More than 300 officials and delegates from companies, think tanks and social organizations of the two countries attended the first China-Pakistan Economic Corridor Forum held in the oil-rich city of Karamay.

The two-day event features six sub-forums on topics including city-to-city and industrial cooperation and youth exchange.

The forum is expected to issue a manifesto elaborating the goals of CPEC and sign a number of cooperation agreement.

An economic corridor linking Pakistan's Gwadar Port to China's Xinjiang with highways, railways and pipelines, the CPEC is among the six economic corridors crucial to China's Silk Road Economic Belt and 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road.
