China's Xi Jinping set to unveil 46 billion dollar deal in Pakistan


China's President Xi Jinping is due in Pakistan, where he is expected to announce 46 billion dollars of investment.

The focus of the spending is on building a China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, running from Gwadar in Pakistan's Balochistan province to China's western Xinjiang region.

Pakistan hopes the investment will boost its struggling economy and help end chronic power shortages.

Leaders are also expected to discuss co-operation on security.

Xi will spend two days holding talks with his counterpart Mamnoon Hussain, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and other ministers.
