“In total, an amount of Rs82.1 billion has been allocated for 184 projects including Rs26 billion for 46 new projects in PSDP 2020-21,” said Secretary Planning Mathar Niaz Rana, while briefing the second meeting of Oversight Committee on Federal Funded PSDP Projects in Balochistan.

In this study we argue for a ‘Big Push’ in infrastructure investments in greater Europe.

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
