This project needs revolutionary steps on war footing basis without any further delay and this opportunity should not missed as we missed several opportunities in the past for various sectors and areas including hydel resources.There are some common reservations on CPEC including lack of transparency and non- availability of complete information. Some believe that Punjab will be a major beneficiary while others consider that country would be under heavy external debt and loansdue to this mega project. In the same way, the energy projects missed the hydro side and the mainfocus was on the coal and oil-based projects due to strong oil lobbies which affected and increase oil prices for the general public and industry in the country. Hydro resources should be focused with long term planning with the help and guidance of WAPDA. The Chinese showed concern over negative propaganda in Pakistani media especially by some international forces. We need to re-address these issued and should take CBMs with Chinese leadership. China is to invest more than I trillion dollars insixty countries all over the world to establish six different corridors under its One Belt and RoadInitiative (maritime Silk Road). The special economic zones(SEZS) and industrial parks under CPEC along the corridor are important and need special attention and focus to concerned zone authorities.Pakistanis firms and Chinese companies should be given a level playing field on the same term and conditions. China is planning to relocate its industry along this corridor which needs proper planning. Prefeasibility studies should be carried out by zone authorities with the help of local firms or universities through industry-academia linkages.CPEC projects under special economic zones (SEZs)would help and benefits training and development of skilled manpower. CPEC will provide and ensure defense security in the region especially for Pakistan. In the end, there is no doubt that CPEC is the game-changer in the region and beyond. Let us work to together to create and have a bright future for Pakistan and China. Both countriesleadership and statesmanship need special attention and focus with dedication and commitment to promoting CPEC and OBOR as a success story but with strong political will, wisdom, vision, for real economic growth and common prosperity for the whole region through regional connectivity.
