NEWS DESK: A research report on ‘The Reality of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor Project (CPEC): Facts Vs. Fiction’ was launched in Islamabad on Monday, reported Radio Pakistan.

It aims at removing misconceptions about the CPEC project and provides factual insight of the project.

Rejecting the impression that Pakistan will not gain any economic benefits from the CPEC, the research report prepared by Pakistan-China Institute, states that the mega-corridor project will change the perception of Pakistan and promote it as an investor-friendly nation. It will also act as an effective counterweight to the Indian pressure. It is a vote of confidence in the future of Pakistan and a way forward for Pakistan’s future prosperity.

The report also states that CPEC will benefit all the provinces.

Highlighting the energy and road infrastructure projects completed under the CPEC, the report states that the special economic zones under the project will cater to the needs of local businesses and increase competitiveness for goods in the local market.

Speaking on the occasion, the interior minister Ahsan Iqbal said only democracy can ensure sustainable socio-economic development.

He said it was because of democracy that the country was today having historic projects like China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

Addressing the ceremony which also marked launch of Chinese language classes in Islamabad, Chairman Senate Raza Rabbani said that CPEC will mutually benefit both Pakistan and China in strategic and economic realms.

Voicing concerns over the US policy on Afghanistan, the Senate chairman said that Washington wants to make New Delhi policeman of the region but this is not acceptable either to Pakistan or the people of the region.

In his remarks on the occasion, Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Yao Jing said the two countries have reached a consensus on taking the CPEC project forward, adding that any problems coming in its way will be addressed collectively

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
