SDPI Seminar Hall, 38, Main Embassy road, G-6/3, Islamabad.
China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), a mega project of USD 46 billion, is considered as a fate changer for the region. The project would improve bilateral ties between Pakistan and China, and ensure economic progress of all the countries engaged to it. The corridor will connect deep sea port of Gwadar in the Indian Ocean to the city of Kashgar in North-Western China.
CPEC would cut the 12,000 km oil supply route between China and the Middle East, and Africa, and would act as basic trade link among these regions. It is driver of connectivity between South Asia and South East Asia. The 3000 km long proposed corridor consists of several communications links and industrial enterprises. At completion it would benefit all regional countries.
Under CPEC USD 25 billion energy projects are set to be completed in Pakistan. Energy projects worth $11.5 billion, $7.1 billion, and $6.9 billion, will be completed in Sindh, Balochistan, and Punjab, respectively. This would help in overcoming energy shortage in Pakistan. However, timely execution of these projects is the key to success. The purpose of this seminar is to better understand the energy component of the CPEC.
In this context, the Sustainable Development Policy Institute arranged the Seminar on ‘The Energy Component of the CPEC’ The Seminar will be held on Monday, February 15, 2016 at Sustainable Development Policy Institute, 38, Street No: 86 Embassy Road, G-6/3 Islamabad Pakistan, 3:00 –5:00 PM.
