Islamabad, Aug 21 : Pakistan has allowed China to build a city specially for housing 5 Lakh Chinese citizens as a part of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) at $150 million in Gwadar which aims to improve connectivity between the two countries. The citizens will be housed in the city by 2022.
According to a report in The Economic Times, only Chinese citizens will live in this gated zone, thereby paving way for China’s colony within Pakistan. The proposed city will be a financial district that Beijing is planning to set up in the Pakistan’s port city to house Chinese workforce.
China already has similar subcities in Africa and Central Asia. There are currently allegations that China is in the process of acquiring eastern Russia and northern part of Myanmar territory. These local zones have given rise to resentment. For advancing the geographical mid-link in BRI, Beijing has invested in Pakistan’s pipelines, railways, highways, power plants, industrial areas and mobile networks.
