“Considering the development needs of the province, an integrated development programme has been formulated. This package will not only lead to the development of Balochistan but also to the development of the country. The present government is taking steps to develop all areas on priority,” he said.

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
