In late September 2019, the master plan of the city of Gwadar in Pakistan was finally approved by local authorities; large projects may now start!
Creation of a CPEC secretariat, a new agency that will manage projects related to the Belt and Road in Pakistan: an important step for the CPEC.
In early 2019, several states in Middle East announced their interest in the port of Gwadar in Pakistan. The port of Gwadar is the flagship project of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). With the opening of the CECP to the rest of the world, the port of Gwadar is likely to become a major hub connecting China, South Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is now officially open to all international investors. This is an invitation sent to Europe to participate in this major program that will transform Pakistan and South Asia.
