ISLAMABAD -- Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan is due to speak at a high profile China-Pakistan business forum on Tuesday armed with one core message: His country remains open to Chinese investment.

His two-day visit to Beijing comes amid recent uncertainty over the future of projects under China's planned $62 billion investment. These were promised as part of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, or CPEC -- Chinese President Xi Jinping's signature project of the Belt and Road initiative.
