The inaugural consignment under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, (CPEC) has reached Zhob, Balochistan. The consignment consisting of dozens of containers arrived in Zhob on Sunday, November 6th, 2016.
China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, the world’s deepest sea port is going to be the game-changer for the region. Not just to China, Gwadar port is expected to connect many countries of Central Asia and Europe and even the massive Russia, to the rest of the world via its huge sea port. Further, it will help the Chinese in exporting its goods to Africa, Europe, and the Middle East and importing oil via a much cheaper and faster route.
China is making a mammoth investment in various infrastructure, energy, and other projects under the umbrella of CPEC. The economic benefits of CPEC will not only reach Balochistan and other areas of Pakistan, it will ripple to the rest of the region surrounding Pakistan.

While there are few (some of them enemies of Pakistan’s development) trying to make CPEC controversial, there are Chinese using facts to shut em’ up.
