China Unveils $58 Billion Railway project from Gwadar to Kashgar
China's railroad to world domination: $58 billion rail link with Pakistan will reduce reliance on West. The 1,860-mile rail system will connect Pakistan’s port of Gwadar to the Chinese city of Kashgar in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region and has the potential to reshape not only trade but geopolitics. The $58 billion plan was reviewed by analysts from the state-owned China Railway First Survey and Design Institute Group Co Ltd., which has determined that despite its hefty price tag the investment is worth it, reported the South China Morning Post. The city of Gwadar is destined to rise as one of the best cities of Pakistan and has potential like Dubai and Hong Kong.
