“CPEC – A PRECURSOR TO REGIONAL ECONOMIC GROWTH AND STABILITY”
With its development currently in full swing, CPEC’s immense popularity has led to the emergence of a thriving discourse on the many merits and challenges brought along with it. These include the enormous potential it holds for creating greater connectivity and economic development within Pakistan and the region. Its emphasis on the large-scale development of infrastructure and greater regional integration is designed to serve as a catalyst for propelling Pakistan to the forefront of global economic growth and development.
Much of the existing discourse on CPEC however has drifted more towards CPEC’s ‘Geo-Strategic’ implications for Pakistan and the region, despite its intentions to the contrary. These include debates that have been restricted to perhaps, more political concepts focusing on the South Asian region’s power politics, from which many a Pakistani scholar seems unable to move beyond.
