CPEC is the des­tiny

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - KA ABUL HAS­SAN

China Pak­istan Eco­nomic Cor­ri­dor is profitable for both China and Pak­istan as it will pro­vide China much eas­ier ac­cess to the In­dian Ocean, es­pe­cially the Gulf coun­tries where it has to travel 13000 kilo­me­tres at present, while af­ter con­struc­tion of the Cor­ri­dor, the dis­tance would be re­duced to just 6000 kilo­me­tres, which would save time as well as umpteen fu­els.

For Pak­istan, it will open up new av­enues of pros­per­ity and closer re­la­tions with China and Cen­tral Asian Re­publics be­sides eco­nomic ben­e­fits for the peo­ple of Pak­istan. Se­condly, the East route and West route will bring pos­i­tive changes within the coun­try, like en­hanced pro­vin­cial har­mony. There will be in­vest­ment and eco­nomic ac­tiv­ity, giv­ing way to job op­por­tu­ni­ties for the lo­cal peo­ple. CPEC shall re­ally change des­tiny of the re­gion; rather it is des­tiny of both China and Pak­istan and the whole re­gion.. —Tur­bat, Balochis­tan
