Thanks to this partnership with Global News Pakistan, OBOReurope will have access to the latest news from Pakistan. We will share with our readers news and opinions about Pakistan and the Belt and Road Initiative.
The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor is the most advanced segment of the Belt and Road Initiative, it goes from China province of Xinjiang to the new port of Gwadar, and it offers a wide transport, business, infrastructure, education real estate projects.
For China, this new corridor is a top priority since it will shorten routes from Western China to Middle-East, Africa and Europe by bypassing the Melaka strait. The CPEC will also act a as stimulant for economic development in Western China.
For Pakistan, the CPEC is an opportunity to further reform the country and increase interregional connectivity by developing adequate infrastructure.
With the CPEC, Gwadar ought to be a major hub connecting South Asia, China, Central Asia and Middle-East. Gwadar hosting a new special economic zone and energy facilities will be a major economic centre in Pakistan. Gwadar will also be the home of 2 million inhabitants by 2050. Sustainable development principles will be implemented in Gwadar and thanks to innovation projects, it will soon turn into Pakistan largest Smart City.
However, the CPEC is not limited to Gwadar. New highways and railroads are in progress in most Pakistani regions. New SEZs are also planned to host Chinese and international investment.
Thanks to this new partnership, we, at OBOReurope will share with our readers CPEC latest development and increase CPEC awareness in Europe.
