Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting and China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) Authority Chairman Lieutenant General (retd) Asim Saleem Bajwa on Saturday reaffirmed the government's resolve to complete all projects in Gwadar in line with the directives of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Sharing photos of under-construction Gwadar International airport in a tweet, Bajwa said the construction work on Gwadar International Airport was in full swing.

“We reaffirm our commitment to launching and completing all projects in Gwadar in line with PM’s directive.”

After completion, he said the mega airport costing $230 million would be a harbinger of development of Gwadar City and Gwadar Port.

Yesterday, the premier had emphasised that the CPEC project would be completed in any circumstances as the project was a guarantee for the bright future of Pakistan.

In line with his vision to provide relief to poor people by reopening the construction industry, PM Imran, while reviewing the progress of projects under CPEC, remarked that “CPEC is an excellent project in terms of socio-economic development of Pakistan.”

Appreciating the performance of the CPEC Authority, Imran directed that all necessary steps be taken to make the performance and capacity of the body more efficient. “The CPEC project will be completed in any circumstances and its fruits will be delivered to all Pakistanis,” he said.

The meeting was attended by federal ministers Asad Umar, Khusro Bakhtiar, Umar Ayub, Trade Adviser Razak Dawood, Lt Gen (retd) Asim Saleem Bajwa and senior officials of the ministries concerned.

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
