Alas the current situation feels like the plan isn't being followed. I've worked with the Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council and the plans they have to transform the city is amazing; and this was way back in 2012.
Ive been for three years now in Gwadar itself.....delay was with respect to PC-1 of the project which wasnt approved by the provincial and federal government till 2017......meaning thereby that all the projects STARTED 4 years late.....CPEC wasnt high on the agenda of provincial and federal governments till 2017...

Ah yes the red tape. Makes you want dictators lol.

I hope this turns out to be a better city than Karachi. Being inland has me puking all over the place (Lahore). I feel claustrophobic in the city, most minor streets have only 1 car space to pass through, no pedestrian spaces, no dedicated cycle tracks.

A modern city should have all those conveniences, considering Gwadar City is just being built from the ground up these things should've been a no-brainer. I look back on the days in Abu Dhabi and miss the conveniences it offers. Islamabad is the only city I've lived in Pakistan that I felt better and wanted to roam around, only that the city has no major attractions and social outlets.

Atleast not in Gwadar and vicinity....might be somewhere else.....land disputes and politics always delay these projects.

U.S. Chargé d’affaires a.i. Angela Aggeler visited Gwadar, marking her second trip to Balochistan in six months. Aggeler thanked Pakistan for being an important partner on commercial and economic issues and a vital member of the Combined Maritime Forces, a multinational maritime partnership that counters illicit non-state actors on the high seas.

The Combined Maritime Forces promote security, stability, and prosperity across approximately 3.2 million square miles of international waters, which encompass some of the world’s most important shipping lanes. Pakistan is one of the most active partners in the Combined Maritime Forces, and its support for counterterrorism and counter-piracy missions has been invaluable in ensuring the free use of the seas, which is critical to the entire global economy.

“The United States looks forward to expanding our cooperation with Pakistan on maritime security and promoting prosperity in the region.”

43 Chinese firms all set to invest in Gwadar SEZ : COPHC

Zhang Baozhong, the chairman of China Overseas Ports Holding Company – the firm that operates Gwadar Port – has said that the first phase of the special economic zone under the China Pakistan Economic Corridor CPEC has been completed in which 43 Chinese companies are going to invest while 200 more firms have been registered for the purpose.

The chairman said that besides infrastructure and energy projects, various industries, including textiles, chemicals, automobiles and mobiles, would be set up in the Gwadar industrial zone, which will create more employment opportunities.

Baozhong rejected the reports circulating in the media about hindrances in the multibillion-dollar project, saying that work on CPEC is going on in full swing and there are no impediments as the “government of Pakistan is extending full cooperation”.

Do you think that we will see supertall and even megatall futuristic skyscrapers like in Dubai, lining the skyline of Gwadar?

Can Gwadar become a major port and a center for economic development? Could it become the next Dubai or Shenzhen?

Instead of all these pipe dreams. Pakistan should priorities to make Gwadar port functional for regular shipping activities. In order the be able to do it, Gwadar need to be connected with rest of the country through roads and rail links so growing Pakistan export can take benefit of it. So Pakistan government should put 100% effort to complete M8 highway as well as railway connection to main lines. If local business houses and industries are not using Gwadar than how come China or Central Asian countries will use it. In the beginning only traffic from China, Afghanistan or CA will not be that much to make it economically viable. For that Pakistan originated/destine traffic is needed to make the economy of scale. But as usual Pakistani government of rent seeking mentality has outsourced to China to develop and make functional of Gwadar port and day out day in minsters, politicians, arm chair specialists are spewing hilarious pipe dreams instead of doing the basics.
