China's Big Plans for Pakistan
I must say that itsn't the achievement of the Nawaz Sharif Government or their efforts to bring this Investment.It is just bcoz they are in this important time in the Government.China would have signed this with any Pakistani Government in Power.It should be apreciated & welcome but we shouldn't live in the fools paradise to think that the China is doing this only in the love of Pakistan or Pakistanis.Infact China is also looking for the Same Strategic depth which we Pakistanis were seeking in Afghanistan.Moreover they mean Business & we have to take it this way.


On November 29, Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif broke ground on a section of the Hazara Motorway, which will connect the outskirts of the capital city of Islamabad to China through the Karakoram Highway. The four-lane, fenced road in mountainous Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province will, according to current projections, take two years to complete and cost $297 million.

The groundbreaking move, China’s Xinhua News Agency proclaims, “signal[s] the implementation of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor agreement.” When the Corridor is completed at the turn of the decade, China will have effectively cut Pakistan in two. At the same time, Beijing will be able to use the Corridor’s new transportation links to faster deploy its forces to areas disputed by Pakistan and India.




In early November in Beijing, Sharif signed Corridor pacts authorizing $45.6 billion in projects in his country. Of that total, $33.8 billion is allocated for electricity generation—the addition of 16,520 megawatts by 2021—and $11.8 billion for transportation infrastructure.

The November pacts follow those signed this February, when the two countries inked deals to improve the Karakoram Highway and build an airport in Gwadar, a port on the Arabian Sea near the Iran border. The February agreements in turn came on the heels of one signed last year, when China and Pakistan agreed to build a fibre-optic cable from the Chinese border to the city of Rawalpindi, next to Pakistan’s capital.

Chinese premier Li Keqiang called the Corridor, during his visit to Pakistan in May of last year, a “flagship,” and the ambitious undertaking is indeed a wonder to behold. The transport and communication links—roads, railways, cable, and oil and gas pipelines—will stretch 2,700 kilometers from Gwadar to the Khunjerab Pass, where the Karakoram Highway leaves Kashmir and enters China, not far from the Chinese city of Kashgar.

Moreover, Islamabad will establish special economic zones in the Corridor where Chinese companies will locate operations. Beijing, as Tarique Niazi of the University of Wisconsin observed, is trying to “integrate Pakistan into the Chinese economy by outsourcing low-tech, labor-absorbing, resource-intensive industrial production,” and the Corridor initiative makes it easier to transform the client state “into a giant factory floor for China.”

Beijing has obviously gone all-in on Pakistan. Sharif’s government will provide 15 percent of the financing for the cable to Rawalpindi, but almost all the rest of the Corridor projects will be on China’s tab. Pakistan does not have the money to pay for the large projects, and according to Khawaja Asif, Pakistan’s minister for water and power, Pakistan will not be incurring debt.

Beijing, it appears, will be providing almost all the funding, which means it will, one way or another, own resulting cash flows as the projects are supposed to be profit-making. Chinese companies will participate in the building of the infrastructure, and Chinese banks, especially the China Development Bank and Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, will be providing financing. The Beijing-sponsored Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, when it opens its doors for business next year, will probably support Corridor projects as well. Sharif, therefore, should be worried that the tide of Chinese cash will effectively turn his country into Beijing’s newest colony.

All the prime minister has to do is look at Gwadar to see Beijing’s designs for Pakistan. China last decade provided about 75 percent of the funding for the strategic port’s first phase of development. In February of last year, Islamabad transferred operations of the port to China, specifically state-run China Overseas Port Holding Co. Many believe the Chinese navy will use the facility, eventually turning it into a formal base.

For now, Beijing’s strategy is to build additional facilities in the port area so that it can then offload oil there and send it across the Himalayas to Xinjiang. On paper, the overland route eliminates the need to ship crude through the easily blocked Malacca Strait, but the Gwadar-Kashgar plan has its own vulnerabilities, especially at both ends.

At the southern end, Gwadar is cut off from the rest of Pakistan by the separatist insurgency in Balochistan province, which has caused turmoil there since the 1960s. In the middle of last decade, Baloch separatists kidnapped and killed Chinese engineers in highly publicized incidents. As a result of the deteriorating situation, Beijing in 2009 decided not to go forward with a multibillion-dollar refinery planned for Gwadar.

Sharif, as part of the just-signed Economic Corridor deal, promised to provide security for China’s projects, but his ability to honor the pledge is dubious. Baloch leaders have already expressed opposition to Beijing’s increased involvement in Gwadar. “We have not invited them,” says Amir Ahmed Suleman Daud, referring to the Chinese. His people, he states, have no choice but to “defend our land.”

China is a great all weather friend of Pakistan. China has always helped Pakistan. If our leaders were honest & competent they could have
made Pakistan benefit more from China. The problem with our peoples is that the nation comes later than their personal interest. With proper
planning & honest approach Pakistan could have gained the status of regional economic power & I am sure China would have helped
realized this dream. Afsoos K Is gher ko aag lag gayi gher K chiragh se.

Where is Pakistan's plan Reply with quote
Once Iran, then US, and Now China, and it goes on and on. History has proved that any nation that depends upon other nations, never gets strength, just mare survival and that also of the lowest form.
If Pakistan has to get anywhere, then Pakistan has to create a Pakistan's plan for prosperity, which should have investment in Pakistani people. Pakistan should stop playing the role of begger and start working hard.

You are right in your this aproach.Yes ALLAH has rewarded us with all the resources of the World.There is only Need to have loyal,sincere & genuine leadership.We Need to stand up on our own feet,there is no free lunch in any international Relations or politics.Self Sufficiency & self relliance are very important factors for the Nation to come up.Beggers are never a chosers.

China is the true friend of Pakistan. He gives help to Pakistan in science and technology and we are very happy that Pakistan give the gawader port to china. The India and USA wants to access this port by force because they know the importance of this port.

I am totally disagree with you it is possible due to PML N government. Why Zardari can't do this? China wants good relationship with every government in Pakistan. But the credit goes to Nawaz sharif who brings this investment in Pakistan.

دنيا کے کسی بھی دوسرے ملک کی طرح پاکستان کی آزاد اور خودمختار قوم کو اس بات کا پورا اختيار ہے کہ چين سميت اپنے تمام ہمسايہ ممالک کے ساتھ بہتر تعلقات استوار کرے۔ خارجہ تعلقات کے ضمن ميں سب سے بنيادی اصول يہی ہوتا ہے کہ اپنے قومی مفادات کو مقدم رکھتے ہوۓ باہمی دلچسپی کے امور کو اجاگر کيا جاۓ اور ايسے مواقع تخليق کيے جائيں جن سے تمام فريقين کو يکساں فائدہ ہو۔

مختلف فورمز پر اس سوچ کی تشہير کی جار ہی ہے کہ امريکہ پاکستان کو ايک محکوم رياست کے طور پر ديکھنے کا متمنی ہے اور چين کے ساتھ بڑھتے ہوۓ مراسم خاص طور پر گوادر بندرگاہ کا منصوبہ خطے ميں امريکی شکست کےمترادف ہے۔ يہ سوچ نا صرف يہ کہ منطقی طور پر غلط ہے بلکہ ان اقدار اور اساس کے بھی عين منافی ہے جس کی بنياد پر ہم اپنی خارجہ پاليسياں اور بين الاقوامی تعلقات استوار کرتے ہيں۔
سب سے پہلی بات تو يہ ہے کہ پاکستان اور چين کے مابين اسٹريجک تعلقات کوئ نئ پيش رفت نہيں ہے۔ يہ تعلقات تو کئ دہائيوں پر محيط ہيں۔

جو راۓ دہنگان اس نظريے کی بنياد پر بے تکی کہانياں بيان کرتے ہيں کہ امريکہ چين کو نيچا دکھانا چاہتا ہے اور خطے ميں چين کی حيثيت کو کمزور کرنا ہی ہمارا ايجنڈا ہے، انھيں چاہيے کہ امريکہ اور چين کے مابين تجارتی تعلقات اور اس حوالے سے اعداد وشمار پر ايک سرسری نظر ڈالیں۔

http://www.census.gov/foreign-trade/balance/c5700.html

اگر امريکہ خود چين کے ساتھ ماہانہ کروڑوں کی تجارت کو فروغ دے رہا ہے اور براہراست چين کی معيشت کو بڑھاوا دينے ميں ايک موثر کردار ادا کر رہا ہے تو پھر سوال يہ ہے کہ پاکستان اور چين کے مابين دوطرفہ تعلقات کس منطق کے تحت عالمی سطح پر اور خطے ميں ہمارے مفادات کے ليے خطرہ بن سکتے ہيں؟

Long ago, in 1974, on the historical visit of King Faisal Bin Abdul Aziz R.A, the atomic commission plan was placed in front of him. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and King Faisal agreed on the atomic Pakistan. The major problem was the finance, so KSA agreed.
In 1981, when Russia was thinking of KPK then NWFP and Baluchistan occupation, Gen. Zia placed a plan ahead of King Khalid Bin Abdul Aziz that F-16 aircraft was the essential for our lives. King Khalid agreed to the plan.
In 1998, PM Nawaz placed a plan ahead of King Fahad Bin Abdul Aziz that Atom test was essential for the sovereignty but the problem of economy will goes down. The plan was of oil and petroleum if we receive it on concession or totally free. King Fahad Bin Abdul Aziz agreed.

Same history we have with Iran Turkey China and USA. The conclusion of my story is that Pakistan has planned to beg, beg and keep on begging till other nations grant us. As a nation, no need to be emotional for national integrity, respect or honor. Sorry if I hurt somebody.

I accept though Nawaz Sharif did well in this regard. It's due to his efforts that Chine China signed the respective agreement. But there's a lot more needed in this country. Much needed and high priority issues are still neglected by the government.

Although I wish well for this friendship but I can see a lot of problems in the very near future because of the cultural differences.
India can be the best friend of Pakistan. I know India behaves a little arrogantly but Pakistan should overlook that and treat India as an elder brother. What can be achieved with love and friendship can not be achieved by fighting or cross accusations.
I also recommend that all Pakistanis should read Sir Allama Md. Iqbal's lectures given to the universities and known as "The reconstruction of religous thought in Islam". These should be translated by some authority into Urdu and distrbuted throughout Pakistan free of charge.
Love and God bless.

I fully agree with you but there is a need to convince Indians about it.Nothing can work in the international relations from one side.It always take two to Tango.India has to realize and accept that now Pakistan is a reality and respect Pakistan sovereignty.There is a need to resolve all the outstanding issues with the diallogues and on a reciprocal basis!!!!!
