QUETTA: Balochistan Chief Secretary Saifullah Chattha has said several mega projects, including the Gwadar Economic Free Zone, West Bay Expressway and Gwadar airport, would be inaugurated during the Chinese president’s visit to Pakistan.
During a briefing on the Gwadar Development Authority in Gwadar, he said: “The Pak-China Economic Corridor Project would not bear fruit without active cooperation of the people of Gwadar.”
The mega project would directly benefit the people of Balochistan, including that of Gwadar, he said.
On the instructions of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Balochistan Chief Minister Dr Abdul Malik Baloch, a housing scheme would be launched in Gwadar, besides development projects pertaining to education, health and water, he said. Mr Chattha said the provincial government would soon hand over ownership documents to the people of Shambay Ismail area of Gwadar. “The allotment of land in Pasni to the people who do not belong to Pasni has been cancelled,” he added.
