Rizwan Ahmed briefed the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) in a meeting chaired by MNA, Munazza Hassan, regarding a tentative review audit for the Maritimes Division. According to reports, all audit objections for the year 2009 were closed, and proceedings adjourned for new projects.

The Federal Secretary Maritime Affairs suggested that within the next three to four years, Gwadar will facilitate Central Asian countries, including Afghanistan, with China already in the Trade Belt mix. The Master Plan reportedly mentioned the establishment of international exhibition centers, theme parks, luxury resorts, botanical gardens, and museums in a thriving modern city.

The city will attract high paid jobs, as the government is keen to provide a tax-free environment. Pakistan’s largest international airport has been inaugurated, high-tech industries will be established, and mega shopping malls, luxury resorts, and manmade islands will change the national outlook.

According to reports, the Master Plan includes a $5 billion investment into Gwadar’s power sector for 15 new power plants, a $1 billion kitty to generate 700,000 cubic meters of fresh water through desalination plants, a central business district, and a manmade island.

Gwadar will require some 15,800 new homes by 2025, 47,600 by 2030, and 254,500 by 2050, according to the new Gwadar Smart City Master Plan.

  • Mis planning because only 47,600 homes in coming 10 years ….
    Wrong estimates that’s why our cities face problems…
    Minimum 200,000 2 lakh homes will be required in coming 10 years

  • Long before the inception of this mega funds generating project over the period of projected time span required to reach that level of financial stability that would not only turbo boost the economy of Pakistan but would also have a major impact on people’s lives & Nation’s overall financial growth but despite the facts & figures life of Pakistani Nation doesn’t seems to be changing in that direction. Success of every nation is based on the system the nation follows. A good system based on check & balance at every level works like to way traffic. System introduced for the country by the honest & loyal leaders implemented for the Nation to follow being followed by the implementers by themselves as an example of system followers leaves a positive & forceful impact on the Nation to follow the system. Instead & regretfully it is going in the opposite direction in Pakistan. Corrupt System implementers causing negative financial diversity is leaving a very negative impact on the economy and daily life of people of Pakistan.
