Islamabad: The China Exhibition and Trading Center has been completed in a record time of 6 months at Gwadar Port worth $12 million.
The announcement was made on Friday. The project was launched in November 2022 on the direction of Federal Minister for Planning Development & Special Initiatives Ahsan Iqbal for promoting business and related activities at Gwadar. Following the direction of the Planning Minister, China Offshore Ports Handling Company (COPHCL) started construction of the project which has been completed on Friday.
The Planning Minister has further directed to conduct the third International Expo Gwadar in the newly established EXPO center in June 2023, coinciding with the 10-year celebrations of CPEC in July 2023.
It is noted that Gwadar holds immense significance as a key component of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and the broader Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). Located strategically on the Arabian Sea, Gwadar serves as Pakistan’s premier deep-water port, offering a gateway to the Arabian Gulf, Middle East, and Central Asia.
The development under CPEC aims to transform Gwadar into a major trade and economic hub, facilitating regional connectivity and enhancing Pakistan’s maritime trade. Gwadar’s potential as an energy and transport corridor, coupled with its strategic location, makes it a focal point for international investment and economic cooperation, driving economic growth and regional integration.
