Vice Chancellor Punjab University Prof Dr Zaffar Mueen Nasar on Saturday said China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) will benefit entire region besides positively influencing Pakistan socially, economically and politically to a great extent. Talking to a bunch of students at his office led by senior faculty member of Institute of Communication  Studies (ICS), he  said CPEC will accrue many economic benefits to China, Pakistan, Russia, Central Asia, and other South Asian countries in terms of trade, investment and people to people contact, it is also likely to create a regional  environment whereby South Asian countries would be attracted to seek peace based on the incentives of CPEC related economic benefits by joining it.  “In this context, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India, in support of China, Russia, Central Asian Republics (CARs) and other South Asian countries, might get convinced for seeking peace in the region by resolving the disputes confronting them,” he added. He further said our region has witnessed a lot of conflict and deprivation in the past. “Time has come to turn a new leaf in the history of the region by bringing peace and prosperity and addressing the challenges of poverty, unemployment and underdevelopment,” he added.  Throwing light on the declining of the export volume in Pakistan, he said the CPEC project would provide a network of road and railways to link remote manufacturing facilities to the Karachi and Gwadar seaports.  The improved connectivity will reduce the costs of transportation and curtail travel time.
