No one can predict about the future of anything. Almighty ALLAH knows better about tomorrow. But one can plan for it to get the better future. Having said that all present indicators, Governments interests, Chinaâ€™s investments, foreign countries keen interests, and mega developments that have taken place recently at Gwadar all points towards a very successful and economically strong city of Gwadar. A common man can think which things are needed for development and to boost the economy, that are; –
Water, electricity, Sui Gas, Telephone, Road links, communication, education, medical facilities, and political stability are the basic things to grow economy. Almost all things are there and present Gwadar is way much better then its past of 2001.
On the other hand all other facilities are being provided, Govt. is spending billions of dollars at Gwadar on Roads Development, Water Desalination plants for the population of Â Gwadar, Â Govt Â is Â already Â constructing Â Mirani Â Dam Â since Â last Â two Â years. Â After completion Â of Â it Â there Â will Â be Â no Â problem Â of Â water Â for Â all Â Makran Â areas. Â In communication sector PTCL is already there and many other private companies working there. Fiber Optic cable network has already been laid out along with the coastal highway from Karachi towards Gwadar city. In the upcoming months ISPâ€™s andÂ Communication companies Â will Â start Â providing Â their Â services Â to Â the Â Residential Â and Â CommercialÂ customers of the emerging tourist/business trade city. It is matter of understanding that Gwadar being a new born city will be in a much better shape in coming years. We too think that Gwadar future is bright and if people hold their investment in Gwadar for some period will surely gain big bucks. And its future will be much better then its present.
