Pakistan Observer - - INTERNATIONAL -

China in­ter­na­tional tran­sit cor­ri­dor.

The ren­o­va­tion of the sec­tion of the cor­ri­dor within the ter­ri­tory of Kaza­khstan is al­most com­pleted, and the whole tran­sit line cross­ing Kaza­khstan is ex­pected to open to traf­fic in 2017.

The World Bank es­ti­mated that the launch of the cor­ri­dor will in­crease the vol­ume of freight traf­fic by 2.5 times, and ve­hi­cle main­te­nance and re­pair alone could bring in rev­enues of some 300 mil­lion U.S. dol­lars to the coun­tries along the cor­ri­dor.

Mean­while, new en­ter­prises and an­cil­lary fa­cil­i­ties will be built along the tran­sit line, which is ex­pected to bring lo­cal peo­ple a large num­ber of em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Musa­taev be­lieved that the Belt and Road con­struc­tion will have a pos­i­tive ef­fect on the price and qual­ity of the coun­try’s im­ports.

The price of im­ported prod­ucts in Kaza­khstan’s mar­ket would be­gin to drop, Musa­taev said, adding that lo­cal man­u­fac­tur­ers must strive to im­prove the qual­ity of their prod­ucts in a bid to win con­sumers.

The pro­fes­sor also pointed out that the Belt and Road Ini­tia­tive is quite wel­come among the youth of the coun­try. LAS VE­GAS—Don­ald Trump railed Sun­day against ef­forts by some frus­trated Repub­li­cans plan­ning a last-ditch ef­fort to try to thwart him from be­com­ing the party’s nom­i­nee, threat­en­ing at one point to stop fundrais­ing if Repub­li­cans don’t rally around him.

Speak­ing at a the­ater at the Trea­sure Is­land ho­tel on the Las Ve­gas strip, Trump re­ferred to “an in­sur­gent group” try­ing to deny him del­e­gates at the party’s July con­ven­tion.—Agen­cies
