So you have decided to put your money to good use but are confused about investment options? Say no more! We are sure you must be aware of the interest Gwadar real estate has aroused in the foreign and domestic investment markets. Here are all the reasons you too, should be seriously considering this investment avenue:

The ‘new Silk Route’

You have entered this race at the perfect time because China has massive plans to revive its historic Silk Route in the 21st century. The ‘New Silk Road’, or One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative, covering 4.4 billion people and up to 40% of the global GDP,  will have ripple effects on the global economy.

The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), with a total investment value of over $60 billion, is the flagship component of the new Silk Road project. CPEC, believed to be China’s biggest ever overseas investment, will see a 3,218km route consisting of highways, railways and pipelines that will connect Pakistan’s Gwadar Port to Xinjiang province of China by 2030.

Gwadar port will open up a route for transporting Middle Eastern oil to several landlocked countries since it is located near the Strait of Hormuz, which is the door for about 20% of the world’s oil. You should understand that this route will soon be the linchpin of the oil-driven Chinese economy.

Safer investments

A plot in Gwadar is cheaper today because it is still a developing city. However, the plot’s value will skyrocket in future as local and foreign workers flock to the city. Besides that, the Pearl Continental in Gwadar is bound to attract tourists.

Overseas investors should be more confident about this investment because the government is particularly keen on protecting this China-backed venture. It has deployed 9,000 Pakistan army soldiers and 6,000 para-military forces personnel in Gwadar.

When picking a developer to invest with, trust is the most important factor to consider. It is very important to invest with a developer who has a No-Objection Certificate (NOC).  If you want to make your investments via a secure online payment portal, from the comfort of your home in Dubai, London or Lahore, you should check out the  official website of one of the developers with an active NOC.

Government incentives

This smart port city with its Free Trade Zone and Export Processing Zone is all set to become the hub of international trade. The imminent trade zone will eliminate customary trade barriers and minimise bureaucratic regulations. As in investor, you are in for a treat because in addition to these facilities, you can also take advantage of the tax amnesty announced by the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) for all enterprises operating in the zone.

The zone area will have a 23-year tax holiday and a land lease upto 40 years for upcoming businesses operating in the region; an opportunity which shouldn’t be missed by investors. Moreover, the ECC has exempted the China Overseas Ports Holding Company Limited (COPHCL) and its operating companies from paying the minimum 1% income tax, 12.5% dividend income and withholding tax, sales tax and federal excise duty.  This announcement is surely catching attention of the worldwide business community and within no time, the port city will witness plethora of investments.

Recently, the government of Pakistan has also excused COPHL, operating companies, contractors and subcontractors from customs duty for a period of 40 years. Therefore, we suggest that if you wish to gain from this generous tax amnesty then consider investing in Gwadar

The Rise of China-Europe Railways

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…
