That's the entire point of contention. CPEC 2.0 is 3 years late already, with no signs of it on the horizon. My post was around that concern, and JCC did not take it up. Had we even achieved something substantive in this regard at the end of the recent JCC, I would not have made this thread. Without CPEC 2.0, we would have a whole lot of roads, power (overcapacity and ensuant capacity charges driving up our fiscal deficit and circular debt), and little hard cash to pay for the debt we took to set up all this physical infrastructure. Heck, even now 1.5 billion USD of stuck-up payment to Chinese IPPs under the head of circular debt are being made with immediate effect. How much of that would be due to capacity charges due to take or pay agreements? This is the extent to which we have been unable to get any concessions while accepting all demands of the other side.You need to be patient my friend, time is money with CPEC. Definition of investment:-" An investment is a purchase that is completed with money that has the potential to produce income or a profit. ... Investing is the act of putting forth capital with the expectation of income or profit. Personal investing is buying financial securities or property for the purpose of making a profit."(https://www.m1finance.com/articles-2/what-is-an-investment/)
CPEC 1.0 is infrastructure investment , CPEC 2.0 is Industrial wealth generation. CPEC 3.0 will be Cultural wealth generation. There will be so much much money floating around people will be spending more time on leisure and vacations.
