QUETTA: Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani on Monday said that Gwadar was gateway to progress and prosperity of not only Pakistan but the entire region.

He expressed these views while addressing participants of the opening ceremony of different projects, including Gwadar Port Authority Commercial and Faqeer Colony Middle School Expansion Project.

“Pakistan and China have been making tremendous progress in establishing regional partnership towards achieving the shared ideals of peace, stability and development,” Sanjrani said.

He observed that Gwadar Port Authority Commercial Complex would turn into a business hub for all the commercial activity in the region.

Calling himself a native of Balochistan, Sanjrani said seeing Gwadar turn into a major port city in the future gave him immense pride and satisfaction.

“Even more heartening is the fact that the numerous projects under the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) will continue to attract investment and development in Gwadar for many years to come,” he maintained.

Inaugurating the projects including Pakistan China Government Faqeer Colony Middle School Expansion Project, Gwadar 300 MW Coal-based Power Project and the Gwadar Port Authority Commercial Complex Project, Sanjrani said that The Faqir Colony Primary School was developed with China’s assistance and the foundation of providing quality education to the local children was laid.

He observed that 300 MW coal power plant in Gwadar was another achievement by China and Pakistan which would provide the much-needed energy resource required for the development of the port city.

“These three achievements are only the beginning of a long series of planned and ongoing projects that would complement the CPEC,” Sanjrani said.  “These initiatives will grant Pakistan and China the opportunity for sustainable and long-term economic development.”

The Senate Chairman said the 4,000 solar energy facilities being donated by China would be beneficial for Gwadar and instrumental in meeting its energy needs. He appreciated the joint efforts for the socio-economic prosperity of the region.

Balochistan government has also reiterated its commitment to develop Gwadar on various occasions.

Earlier, Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal said the provincial government had finally approved the much-delayed Gwadar master plan, which would provide relief to its residents.

“The final map of the Gwadar master plan has been issued. It wasn’t approved in Islamabad or Quetta, but in Gwadar during the governing body meeting,” the chief minister, who is also the chairman of Gwadar Development Authority’s governing body, wrote in a tweet.

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…
