QUETTA: The Balochistan government has decided to turn Gwadar’s municipal committee into a metropolitan corporation in order to pave the way for devolving powers to the lower level in the port city under the 18th Amendment.
“The provincial government seeks to empower the local body system by transferring administrative powers to the lower level,” said Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan while chairing a high-level meeting of provincial ministers on Monday.

“Shifting of powers to the lower level will directly benefit the masses,” said Kamal.
The participants of the meeting agreed to declare Gwadar a metropolitan corporation under the pretext of a master plan for the development of the port city.

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.
