China-Pakistan Financial Corridor (CPEC) is an important project to boost Pakistan’s economy. The CPEC defined route goes from Kashgar in China to Gwadar via Karachi and reaches Turkey via Iran. CPEC is reviving the old Silk Road initiative which will operate under the new initiative of “One Belt, One Road.” The new route will not just connect China and Pakistan for mutual benefits, but it will be a source of progress for the 26 connected countries. Moreover, CPEC includes a number of projects which includes a railway line construction which will connect Kashgar with Gwadar and road networks for different countries. It also includes an optic-fibre cable project, different energy production units and a dry port.
Pakistani real estate has seen a tremendous increase in property prices since the agreement. It has not only grabbed the attention of investors, but the demand for land has increased significantly. Prices run into the millions in Gwadar, so we can say it has touched the sky. And, soon after the government announcement to construct a deep-sea port, the remote fishing town of Gwadar witnessed a significant boost in prices. The initiative has given rise to housing schemes in Gwadar, not only for accommodating Chinese officials but for buyers across the board.

Also, the number of online search inquiries on Lamudi.pk for Gwadar properties increased since the government announced in 2014. There are expected to be knock on effects for other critical sectors, which will ultimately improve the economy of Pakistan.

However, there is a downside. For the purpose of constructing roads, the government had to acquire land that was previously owned by locals. Various affected groups protested and forcefully halted the construction work in different districts until their demands were accepted. Later, the government paid a fair price to those affected for the smooth completion of the project. Major protests in Tharparker appeared when the government dam construction began. A few protest groups called the initiative harsh, but in certain respects, they are not thinking about the future growth of Pakistan’s economy. Non-payment of compensation is a major issue for the smooth running of the project but, the government is doing its best to please all affected parties.
