The entire people of Gwadar are in transition. and are seeing tangible and promising changes in their living standards, livelihoods. business and socio-economic mobility. The credit for this is China-led growth. “In 2015, I barely moved when. I landed in Gwadar. The roads closed and there are no luxury hotels except PC. which closed most of the time. There is practically no commercial activity in the city. But seven years later the picture was different. It’s about to happen,” said Zhang Baozong. chairman of China Overseas Port Holding Company. This represents remarkable progress.
