    Aoa Awan sb! Firstly, I would say that it has been a pleasure for me to be a regular reader of this blog. It is a very vibrant platform for constructive discussion about Gwadar and CPEC. We, the readers, feel highly indebted to you for your efforts in this regard. Secondly, I need to ask you a few question:

    1) Work on runway of Gwadar airport is completed. Do you have any information that when direct flights from Lahore or Islamabad to Gwadar are being started?
    2) When ground breaking ceremony of New Gwardar International Airport is expected?
    3) Currently, what is the per acre price of landlocked open land in Qitaat 5 (Mouza Darbela Shumali) near Gwadar Gymkhana.
    4) In your estimation, how much the ground breaking ceremony of New Gwardar International Airport will impact the prices in Qitaat 5 of Mouza Darbela Shumali?

    Regards,

    CPEC a most precious project and Pakistani politics
    Gwadar which is the part of Pakistan since 1958 is still facing problem to give benefit of its geographically location and deep sea water. Up-till 90s non of the govt. give attention to it. PMLN during their 2nd Govt. tenure carried out the survey of coastal highway and feasibility report of gwadar deep sea port. Unlucky they do not start work on it.
    There after Perwaiz MUsharaf started work on coastal highway and Gwadar deep sea port. Beside putting operational coastal highway , Gwadar port 1st three berth completed and ready for operation in 2006.
    Unluckily there after work on port become slow and Perwaiz Musharaf also went in political pressure due to one or the other reason. Gwadar project went in cold storage for next 12 years. This gap of 12 years is not recoverable.
    Now the China and Pakistan both agreed to work on CPEC. A project that will give lot of benefit to China beside giving financial benefit to Pakistan.
    Any body agree or not, credit of this goes 1st to PMLN and then Pakistan Army. Project gives lot of benefit in energy and road network. Motorway is going to be completed in near future from KPK to karachi and Kashger to Gwadar. A major network of road is under way. After completion of this network, the journey will be easy , cheap and time saving.
    China has give the grant for the construction of Gwadar Airport. Stone breaking ceremony of which was expected in sep. this year.
    Beside CPEC PMLN has given the nation other wonderful projects, i.e Metro bus service in Lahore and Islamabad, Orange train in Lahore and Green metro bus service in Karachi. Usually we say that it is loss of money but ask this question who daily travel via this comfortable cheap journey.
    The no 1, problem in Pakistan was load shedding. If you see the project near completion up-till June 2018, you can expect the end of load shedding by the end of next year.
    All was going fine but suddenly what happened Prime Minister disqualified with the order of supreme court. I am in favour of Supreme Court decision. I think this case may be decided on merit. If there is corruption then give the examplery punishment. But if in case the case is prolonged or decided in favour of PMLN then who will be responsible of the loss that we get in the delay of on-going and newly development projects.
    My request to all political parties to see the things not as per their own wishes but in the larger interest of the nation. My request is to Mian Nawaz Sharif that he defend his case in the court but not on the road.

    THE BIG QUESTION: WILL CPEC WILL BE GAME CHANGER FOR PAKISTAN.(newlinemagazine.com)
    Kaiser Bengali is an economist and former advisor for planning and development to the Sindh chief minister.
    The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) does promise to be a game changer. It is a project of a magnitude that will change the economic geography of Pakistan. An earlier project of similar magnitude and impact was the Indus Water Works: the construction of the Mangla and Tarbela dams, along with thousands of kilometers of canals. Resultantly, two crops a year are now grown, where not a blade of grass grew and bustling towns exist in place of dusty landscapes. That was the 1970s and the beneficiary provinces were, largely, Punjab and Sindh. Now CPEC’s western route promises to be a similar harbinger of change for Balochistan, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit-Baltistan.
    However, all projects have benefits and costs. CPEC, too, has its downsides and it would be necessary to identify them and adopt mitigating measures. At times, the mitigation of human and social costs are as important as the project itself. Much depends on how CPEC is executed. To what extent CPEC will be beneficial to Pakistan, will depend on how the component schemes are devised and implemented. Currently, data is scarce. However, there are 12 essential questions, the answers to which will help determine if CPEC will be a game changer or a ‘game over.’
    1.Has Pakistan prepared an overall CPEC feasibility?
    2.Has Pakistan prepared a CPEC Environment Impact Assessment?
    3.What is Pakistan’s share in Gwadar’s port revenues, if any?
    4.What is Balochistan’s share in Gwadar’s port revenues, if any?
    5.Is the Gwadar-Khunjerab Highway a toll road? If yes, what are the shares of provinces through which the Highway passes?
    6.What will be the (positive and adverse) impact of China’s Transit Trade on Pakistan’s manufacturing sector?
    7.What will be the impact of tax exemptions given to CPEC-related foreign imports on Pakistan’s manufacturing sector?
    8.What will be the (medium-and long-term) balance of payments impact of foreign exchange inflows (loans, foreign direct investment) and outflows (debt repayment, profit remittance)?
    9.What is the budgetary burden on Pakistan for protecting foreign road and sea convoys?
    10.What percentage of the security units, being raised for CPEC-related protection, is recruited from the districts through which the Gwadar-Khunjerab Highway passes?
    11.What is the water provision plan for Gwadar? If desalinated, what is the financing plan to cover the high cost?
    12.Is there a plan to ensure that Gwadar does not become a Baloch-minority city?

    New Gwadar Intl. Airport is a joint venture between Pakistan, Oman and China. The Sultanate of Oman provided USD17.5 million for the airport project, while China plans to invest USD662 million for land development, sea port and airport works in and around Gwadar. Pakistan plans to develop the new facility on a 4300-acre land plot 14km away from the existing Gwadar International Airport. The China Communications Construction Company has been awarded the USD246m project, which is expected to be complete within a 30-month period.

    New Gwadar Airport plans to begin construction from Sep-2017 and is expected to be completed between two and three years. The airport will be capable of handling widebody aircraft.

    Meanwhile Govt. is extending the Runway of existing Airport to be able for landing of big A/C. So that flight operation could be started from Lahore and Islamabad( direct to Gwadar instead via Karachi).
