Many Chinese support sending 001 to Pakistan
To own an aircraft carrier will just bankrupt Pakistan, for the upkeep of even a decent carrier-borne assets is beyond Pakistan's means.

Unless somehow Pakistan finds some other sponsor(s) to foot the bill...

Besides, having just one carrier is but a token force at best.

This pretty much means that if China wants to build up her catapult-capable naval aviation capabilities before the 2030s, she will have to rely on conventional-powered carriers. In this sense, most likely we will see a couple or more new conventional carriers before the 2030s
China could have started building another 003 in the past few years, but it has not done so. If China really needs more conventional carriers, it means that a lot of time has been wasted.

No time was wasted, because the next aircraft carrier is based on the (construction-) experience with 003. For this, 003 first has to reach a final state. Perhaps the hull of the next aircraft carrier has already started somewhere. It takes time for modules to be recognized as part of an aircraft carrier.

Well, the 003 is incorporating a lot of new and unproven technology. If more than one of these ships are built concurrently, it would be very risky.
