International workshop on CPEC in April to highlight opportunities, challenges


FEBRUARY 23, 2019

The National Defence University (NDU) and Obortunity, Pakistan’s premier CPEC-focused firm, are organizing an international workshop to highlight opportunities and challenges of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

The two-and-a-half week international learning and networking event will be held in Beijing, Islamabad and Gwadar from April 17 to May 3.

With the completion of the first phase of CPEC by year-end, activities related to the second phase – industrial cooperation – are gaining momentum. The second phase encompasses public and private special economic zones (SEZs), industrial relocation from China, attracting FDI into Pakistan, and growing opportunities for trade through new products and markets.

The event will acquaint the participants with key areas and challenges of CPEC and the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) to a point where they can conceive and implement solutions. The participants will get an opportunity to build a network of key public and private sector individuals both in China and Pakistan. “They will see for themselves where CPEC stands and where it is headed to. And they will be able to rapidly formulate and implement their own strategy of benefiting from CPEC,” according to a press release issued by the organisers.

“To ensure the success of second phase of CPEC, intense involvement of private sector is required. Government-to-government collaboration conceived the CPEC and with the private sector as a partner built the foundations focusing on transport infrastructure, Gwadar Port and electricity generation. Now, industrial cooperation depends on the successful development and population of special economic zones (SEZs), significant industrial relocation from China and accelerated industrialization,” it said.

“Moreover, the current government wants to include technologically empowered and corporate agriculture; social sector and media and telecommunications in the CPEC. For these transformations to succeed, a leading role for the private sector, academia and civil society is needed,” the statement said.

Historical relationship between Kurd and Baloch.

The Kurds are the ethnical group living in a region known as Kurdistan which is divided into Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran. They  are struggling for an independent region since decades and they are famous for their female guerrilla fighters.        On 25 September 2017, the referendum for an independent Kurdish region  was held in Iraq with a turn out of 72 %.   On this important occasion, the historical relation between Kurd and Baloch people is worth discussing.       When it comes to history, every nation tends to find its roots and origin. Same goes with the Baloch people. The Baloch people are always curious  about  finding their roots in history. Even if you  talk to a shepherd in Balochistan, he will be curious to talk about his  tribal or ethnical roots.      The Balochs have always conveyed the history to the next generations in different mediums like poems etc. No Baloch before 20th century had written books on  history  or origin of the Baloch nation .
