What is the importance of Pak- China Economic Corridor for Pakistan?

When the corridor is constructed, it will expand the number of trade routes between China, the Middle East and Africa. Energy security is a key concern for China, as it is the world's biggest oil importer, and oil pipelines through Pakistan would cut out ocean travel through Southeast Asia.

According to Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying, the corridor will "serve as a driver for connectivity between South Asia and East Asia." Mushahid Hussain, chairman of the Pakistan-China Institute, told China Daily that the economic corridor "will play a crucial role in regional integration of the 'Greater South Asia', which includes China, Iran, Afghanistan, and stretches all the way to Myanmar.

China plans to build oil storage facilities and a refinery at Gwadar Port, with oil transported to its Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region via road and pipeline. This will let it move energy and goods to inland China without going through the Strait of Malacca, which could be blocked by the U.S. or India should hostilities break out in the region. The project will also lead to development in western China, where tensions are simmering from activities by radical separatists. Iran has also responded positively over the proposal to link the Iran–Pakistan gas pipeline with China, with the Iranian ambassador to China describing it as a "common interest" between the three countries.

CPEC is considered economically vital to Pakistan in helping it drive economic growth. Moody's Investors Service has described the project as a "credit positive" for Pakistan. In 2015, the agency acknowledged that much of the project's key benefits would not materialize until 2017, but stated that it believes at least some of the benefits from the economic corridor would likely begin accruing even before then.

A study by the Pew Research Center in 2014 found that 78% of Pakistanis have a positive view of China.

met with Premier Li Kequiang in China to discuss further plans.[19] While the project took shape during Sharif's tenure, the vision for an economic route stretches as far back as the Musharraf era.[20]

In November 2014, Chinese government announced that it will finance Chinese companies to build $45.6 billion worth of energy and infrastructure projects in Pakistan as part of CPEC. Documents quoted by Reuters show that China has promised to invest around $33.8 billion in various energy projects and $11.8 billion in infrastructure projects which will be completed by 2017 at most. The deal includes $622 million for Gwadar Port. According to Reuters, under the CPEC agreement, $15.5 billion worth of coal, wind, solar and hydro energy projects will add 10,400 megawatts of energy to the national grid of Pakistan.[21]

On 20 April 2015, Pakistan and China signed an agreement to commence work on the $46 billion agreement, which is roughly 20% of Pakistan's annual GDP,[22] with approximately $28 billion in immediate projects and the rest allocated for projects in the pipeline.[23]

The deal includes a $44 million fibre optic cable[24] and will add 10,400 Megawatts to Pakistan's energy grid through coal, nuclear and renewable energy projects.[25] Also included are major upgrades to Pakistan's transport infrastructure, including:

    Karakorum Highway (Havelian in the Abbottabad District to Thakot)
    Karachi-Lahore Motorway (Multan to Sukur)
    The Gwadar Port East Bay Expressway Project
    Gwadar International Airport

The plan also includes projects to address climate change, joint research in cotton Biotech and marine research, cooperation between China's General Administration of Press and Publication and Pakistan's Ministry of Information and Broadcasting as well as an agreement between China Central Television, PTV and the Pakistan Television Foundation on the rebroadcasting of CCTV news and documentary programs in Pakistan.
