A new road will soon connect the port to the Makran Coastal Highway, which links Gwadar to Karachi. Gwadar’s new airport will be Pakistan’s largest when it is finished.
The China Power Company also plans to open a 300-megawatt coal-fired power plant around 20km from the port to provide electricity to Gwadar.
Meanwhile, tourism has started as well, and the port is increasingly bustling with visitors. Certainly, the security in Gwadar has improved considerably in the last two years. Given all the recent development, the dream of Dubai will be realized in a decade or so.
