The all-weather friendship between China and Pakistan reached new heights when the two countries decided to collaborate on China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). CPEC is a part of China’s One Belt One Road (OBOR) project which is a large investment project with close to $1 trillion invested across the globe. Some have even termed it as the revival of China’s ancient Silk Road. The $46 billion CPEC stretches from Xinjiang province of China to the port of Gwadar in Pakistan. This has two subparts, transportation, and energy.
