LAHORE  – China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is set to get a major push as Saudi Arabia is expected to join the multi-billion-dollar project soon.

With the Islamic kingdom joining the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) of the Chinese government, the major stakeholders – Islamabad and Beijing – would speed up the efforts to complete projects as soon as possible.

Reports in media suggest Saudia Arabia is going to turn Gawadar into an oil city.

Pakistan needs $9 billion to run state affairs and it will overcome its difficulties with the heavy investment coming from China and Saudi Arabia.

In September last year, Saudi Ambassador to Pakistan Nawaf Saeed Ahmed Al-Malky said that Saudi Arabia would “soon” undertake investments at Gwadar Port and join the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

The Arab kingdom is one of the many countries who have shown keen interest to participate in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), primarily to relate its economy with China and take steps in achieving its 2030’s Vision.

The vision of the KSA 2030 Plan is to make the diverse economy in mega projects like powerhouses and energy to turn from its oil dependency.

One of the pillars of their vision plans is to use its unique location and become a global hub for vast economic activities. The CPEC would provide the Saudis a network of great trade pattern to engage even better in the world trade traffic.

KSA will also be able to help China to have a better crude oil for its import purposes as billions of dollars of China’s economy is highly dependent on the trade activities.

Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, both can benefit from the exclusive trade routes under the BRI project.

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…
