At the same time, a pilot activity ship has also docked at Gwadar Port to carry Chinese and Pakistani goods to Africa and Middle East.



The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is a $46 billion network of roads, railways and energy pipelines linking western China to a deep-water port on Pakistan s Arabian Sea coast, which passes through Pakistan s troubled Balochistan province.

This project will not only benefit China and Pakistan but will have positive impact on Iran, Afghanistan, India, Central Asian Republic, and the region.

About $4.5 billion of the planned investment in the corridor will go towards road infrastructure, with two-thirds of the total $46 billion investment funnelled towards energy projects.
