INDIA:

  • India will begin full-scale operations in its first foreign port venture at Iran’s Chabahar, a facility that opens on the Gulf of Oman that will aim to facilitate more South Asia, Central Asia and West Asia trade. It represents a clear and potent commercial challenge to China’s massive port investment in neighboring Pakistan’s Gwadar, a key component of Beijing’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

PAKISTAN:

  • Pakistan is offering access to Gwadar port, a strategic component in China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), to landlocked Central Asian countries in the hope of stimulating activity at the idle facility. The proposed line will reduce freight transport costs between Central Asia and Pakistan by about a third. Uzbekistan is also considering a second route through China to access Pakistani ports.

  • PAKISTAN: The resurgence of religious-cum-sectarian attacks in Pakistan has been taking place exactly as the CPEC has been revived in the country. Baloch militant groups have been carrying out attacks in Gwadar – the heart of the CPEC – and elsewhere in the country in order to show their opposition. The Chinese, with heavy investments in Pakistan, are concerned about the security situation. Militant groups have carried out attacks against Chinese workers and installations in the past.
