Abstract / Summary
This capstone project focused on the in-depth analysis of the role and impact of this multi-billion-dollar project on the politically deprived region of Gilgit-Baltistan. This region is the gateway to CPEC as it is the only region of Pakistan that shares border with China. The geographical ties, tributary and trade relationship and even family relationships between Gilgit-Baltistan and the Xinjiang region of China dates back centuries before the creation of Pakistan and the post revolution China.
The project has been designed and implemented in a way that GB’s role is to provide the services of road and some other services probably in terms of security and an enabling environment for CPEC.The major demand is to address the lingering political and constitutional status of Gilgit-Baltistan in order to safeguard Pakistan’s interest in CPEC and other mega projects in the region and to ensure the inclusion of the people of GB in the decision-making process.
