Gwadar’s local communities are being prioritized through numerous steps. The construction of a desalination plant, capable of producing 1.2 million gallons of water, is currently underway. It will become operational in six months.
There will also be a modern Pak-China Vocational Technical Training Institute that will provide an extensive three-year program of training to the local youth. In addition, around 3,000 solar panels have also been given to the poorest communities in Gwadar.
Water and electricity will be provided to the city in five months as part of the short-term strategy for the project. In addition, the Pakistani Trading Corporation has been authorized to import a third of its cargoes at Gwadar, and the motorway M-8 has been completed.
The long-term strategy stresses the construction of LNG and POL terminals at the Gwadar port, as well as the provision of electricity, water, and gas to allow phase-2 expansion of the port.
