ISLAMABAD, Dec. 23 (Xinhua) -- Dhabeji Special Economic Zone (SEZ) to be developed under the framework of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) in Pakistan's Sindh province will generate 1 billion U.S. dollars investment and provide 100,000 direct and indirect jobs for local population, Chief Executive Officer of Sindh Special Economic Zones Management Company (SEZMC) said on Wednesday.
