CPEC Projects Improvement in 2017 laudable

Suspension of financing for few CPEC infrastructures project was the most alarming news of the year for Pakistan, as China is completely financing the CPEC projects. Professionals, however, point out that CPEC is more critical for China and financing would continue soon.

China has already dedicated to funding different CPEC projects value 62 billion dollars and the road is being recognized as an activity filter for Pakistan. This is one of the biggest megaproject ever performed worldwide. CPEC includes infrastructure projects, energy projects, development of Gwadar, and development of 30 special economic areas.

People have some question regarding some sectors that Pakistan would face a huge problem when he would have to pay the huge CPEC-related loans given by China. However, experts say, that Pakistan would hot face any issue if acts wisely.

The advantages of CPEC would begin flowing into Pakistan in this year 2018 when this economic corridor would be fully operational and Pakistan would start its earning. Installments will begin with the 4th year of the project after the date of financial closing.

Pakistan would benefit from investment from China to build up the much-needed infrastructures and to link the ability deficiency. This project would also help the nation realize its potential of becoming a local business hub as well as a corridor, thereby providing huge transport earnings and possibilities.

The transport earnings even in the 1st year would be greater than the repayments that Pakistan would begin to make for CPEC financing in 2021. Debt repayments are predicted to be up to 10 years will be 70 million dollars for every 1 billion dollars value of the project.

Equity repayments are predicted up to Three years and will be 30 million for every 1 billion dollars value of the project. For the China-Pak economic corridor projects, almost 16 billion dollars, yearly financial debt and value refunds would be almost 1.6 billion dollars from 2021 to onward.

No doubt, Gwadar is the best and important CPEC corridor for Pakistan because it would connect Chinese province by road and railway to Pakistan and finally Gwadar, which has been designed and examined up to the destination of Kashgar. Gwadar is the sole natural deep seaport in the whole area, capable of anchoring huge ships that carry 6,000 to 8,000 container. Even Dubai is kept efficient through ongoing dredging.

Some experts have some doubt about the huge investment of China in this project. No doubt, it is the game changer of Pakistan and China as well. Now, almost 80% of oil is transferred by delivering from the Strait of Malacca to China’s seaport Shanghai, a distance of 16,000 km, with the travel taking almost 2 to 3 weeks. However, once Gwadar becomes efficient the gap will disappear to less than 5,000km.

China’s existence in Gwadar will also increase its impact in the Indian Sea, an important path for oil transport between the Pacific and the Atlantic. China would continue to fund CPEC projects particularly street infrastructures projects. To alleviate the ability shortages in the nation it has already financed and finished four energy projects of roughly 5,200 MW. The advantages of these projects would go to the local sectors.
