What are the key stats involving Gwadar International Airport?
It’s no surprise to see a Chinese official becoming involved in the story because the airport forms a vital part of CPEC projects. The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (Find out more about CPEC here) is responsible for a number of developments across Pakistan but the city of Gwadar, with its key location on the south western tip of the country, has always been a main focus of the organisation.
When complete, the airport will be the largest in the whole of the country, edging out the sites in Karachi, Islamabad and beyond. It will be capable of hosting bulky craft including the new Boeings and in a city with as much potential as Gwadar, it is a vital artery in regards to everything CPEC have planned.
The cost is estimated at $230 million so this is up there with the biggest of all projects in the region. Investors in Gwadar property have been anxious for work to commence and we’ve now arrived with all the focus switching to Friday and Prime Minister Imran Khan at Gwadar Expo 2019.
With the completion of the airport shall come abundant tourism and commerce within Gwadar. It is a prime investment area which is why it is slated to become potentially a next Dubai of the World. CPIC is leading in the private development taking up many huge projects in Gwadar including Zero Point Gwadar, Downtown Gwadar the Heartland and the Executive Collection. CPIC has won awards for its performance and excellence in the field of real estate. CPIC is also the first to handover property in Gwadar with its highly ambitious International Port CIty project.
