CPEC – Gwadar’s Pivotal Role & Blue Economy

The Parliamentary Committee on CPEC held a dialogue on March 23 to discuss the development of Gwadar. The dialogue covered growth of Blue Economy in Pakistan in collaboration with FES, Friedrich Ebert Stiftung.

What is Blue Economy?

Blue Economy is the sustainable use of ocean resources for economic growth. As Pakistan is moving towards developing a mega-scale port that will generate millions of rupees for the country, its Blue Economy is slowly developing.

The meeting also shed light on projects like Karachi Circular Railways. Mr. Shah expects this Malir expressway mass transit project to resolve the city’s worsening transportation conditions and help commuters in their day-to-day hustle. Additionally, the Chief Secretary Sindh discussed the Islamkot airport build solely to facilitate the investors. The Dhabeji special economic zone was also discussed in meeting. It is an economic zone planned to cover 1500 acres of land, which will boost the economic activities in the region greatly.

In the end, the Chief Secretary Sindh encouraged all the member to visit Thar Power Plant and witness the progress of the project.
