ISLAMABAD: The mega projects like China's BRI and CPEC will prove to be growth-pullers in the time of global recession in the days to come (following the outbreak of Covid-19), said Gwadar Pro quoting the recently published reports and research studies of World Bank (WB) and IMF.

Although at present, this appears to be a remote possibility to some economists worried about the post-Corona negative growth, a WB's April 2020 report forecasts good days ahead for Pakistan whose "GDP is likely to increase up to 6.43 per cent till 2030, courtesy the steady pace of CPEC".

According to the research studies, certainly there is no reason to disbelieve this 2030 projection. Given the fact that despite slowing down of economic activity in many parts of the world, CPEC is entering its second phase that will also focus, among others, on more areas of cooperation like tourism, food security, science and technology and agriculture with enhanced partnership between China's and Pakistan's private sectors.

These authentic reports, released by WB and IMF, belie misdirected propaganda and baseless rumours that continue surfacing, periodically, at the behest of anti-CPEC elements whose jealousy and callousness about ever-growing Pak-China economic cooperation stands fully exposed.

The main factor underlying this increased cooperation despite Corona-related crisis, is the iron resolve of both the “Iron Brothers”, China and Pakistan, to remain steadfast on the path of shared prosperity.

According to Yao Jing, Chinese ambassador to Pakistan, "Completion of phase-1 of CPEC has laid a strong foundation for the 2nd phase which will focus on development of Special Economic Zones (SEZs) and strengthening of the trade and cultural ties through joint ventures and exchanges of delegations."

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
