The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), which is the symbol of modern development and progressiveness under the mammoth Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), has emerged as a foundation of futuristic growth in Pakistan.

With the construction and development of various venues nearing completion despite the pandemic, the Chairman of the CPEC Authority, Lt. General (Retd) Asim Saleem Bajwa, has prioritized projects in Balochistan as the focal venue for the spearheading of the infrastructural upshot. In this regard, Gwadar’s port connectivity with the other parts of the country is a big target.

Similarly, the Basima-Khuzdar strip is expected to be completed by end of 2021, costing north of Rs.11 billion.
