Whole Gwadar region should be built as a special economic zone

Chinese scholar Prof Cheng Xizhong has suggested that whole Gwadar region should be built as a special economic zone, to get its maximum benefits.

In a report published by Gwadar Pro App on Wednesday, he further proposed that there should be preferential policies for whole of the region. Moreover, business and security environment in the region should be improved.

Prof. Cheng agreed that Gwadar under the CPEC framework will promote Pakistan’s export growth. It’s a good wish for a bright future and also an expectation of the whole Pakistani nation. However, to fully realize this aspiration, the Pakistani government and parties concerned need to make great efforts. He noted Pakistan’s government’s approval of “Gwadar Smart Port City Master Plan”, has set the tone and direction for Gwadar development.

The relevant development and construction work will be carried out in three stages, with results to be delivered in 2025, 2035 and 2050 respectively.

The first stage will focus on providing necessary living infrastructure and will be completed before 2025.

After that, Gwadar development will gradually focus on the functional infrastructure of port city, including modern loading and unloading facilities, advanced storage and logistics facilities, infrastructure of special economic zone, and airport roads and other transportation infrastructure. Finally, Gwadar will be built into a modern and intelligent port of international standard. To attain the goal, he added, it is necessary to launch preferential policies and ensure favorable business environment to attract domestic and foreign investments to Gwadar on a large scale, so that Gwadar region can enjoy vitality and prosperity.

A developed Gwadar is bound to drive the growth of Pakistan’s export, either domestic made or foreign made, and increase the revenue for Pakistan’s finance. Prof. Cheng asserted that Pakistan should go for the modernization of the country’s infrastructure; industrialization as well as to develop education so as to improve the cultural and educational quality of the people in an all-round way and development of science and technology.

A ‘European Silk Road’

publication_icon Philipp Heimberger ,  Mario Holzner and Artem Kochnev wiiw Research Report No. 430, August 2018  43 pages including 10 Tables and 17 Figures FREE DOWNLOAD The German version can be found  here . In this study we argue for a ‘Big Push’ in infrastructure investments in greater Europe. We propose the building of a European Silk Road, which connects the industrial centres in the west with the populous, but less developed regions in the east of the continent and thereby is meant to generate more growth and employment in the short term as well as in the medium and long term. After its completion, the European Silk Road would extend overland around 11,000 kilometres on a northern route from Lisbon to Uralsk on the Russian-Kazakh border and on a southern route from Milan to Volgograd and Baku. Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
