Impacts of The China Pakistan Economic Corridor
The China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is the first and most significant stage of China’s ambitious ‘One Belt One Road’ program that is set to re-draw the political and economic geography of South and Central Asia. As this project enters its implementation phase, its far-reaching impacts not just on Pakistan’s development, political economy and internal security, but also on regional and foreign policy dynamics are being felt strongly. However, while there is considerable enthusiasm in Pakistan about the CPEC, there are also a broad range of concerns that arise out of the proposed development.
It is in this context that this Panel Discussion brings together Pakistani scholars working on diverse aspects of CPEC and its wider ramifications for the region and rule of law.
