A high level delegation from China Communications Construction Company calls on Minister for Planning, Development and Reform

Islamabad, December 10, 2014 (PPI-OT): A high level delegation from China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) called on the Federal Minister for Planning, Development and Reform Prof. Ahsan Iqbal in the Planning commission today. There was a detailed discussion on Pakistan-china Economic Corridor as to how the road and rail infrastructure will blossom into economic hub in Gawadar.

“Unlike narrowness of Persian Gulf where it is very difficult for big ships to turn for Middle East, Gawadar is wide and big enough that all the cargo of big ships can be offloaded here and From Gawadar the small ships can also carry cargo to Oman, Dubai, Doha and everywhere in Persian Gulf”, the Federal Minister said.

“To tap the potential of Gawadar Port we are also having a master plan as to how Gawadar can be developed as a model city like Singapore and Dubai with the availability of commercial services and attraction for tourism”, he said. “Whichever company prompts in getting approval from NDRC in China, it will have more chances of investment in China-Pakistan Economic Corridor”, he added.

He said, “There are virgin beaches along the whole Makran Coast because no one has ever traversed such natural beaches. It gives a perspective of tourist resort for Pakistan, China and surrounding countries”.

The Federal Minister directed the delegation to meet the authorities of NHA and Ministry of Railways which are important stakeholders of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.
