While Pakistan got benefited with a long time Chinese investment worth US$ 46 for country’s infrastructure through ‘China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC)’; China put final stamp on its decades old craving to have direct physical presence in the Arabian sea and Gulf’s ‘hot-waters’ through a land route, via Pakistan. President Xi Jinping’s visit and his country’s unprecedented investment in Pakistan, however, evoked mixed reactions in and out Pakistan. The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is part development scheme, part strategic gambit. Although Beijing and Islamabad have been close partners for decades, the CPEC is a reflection of intensified and expanded bilateral cooperation at a time of rising Chinese geopolitical ambition and persistent concerns about Pakistan’s security and development. Although Beijing is quick to downplay geostrategic motivations behind the CPEC, many commentators have noted that over the long run, an overland link across Pakistan to the Arabian Sea could help alleviate the “Malacca dilemma,” China’s vulnerability to the fact that roughly 85 percent of its oil imports travel through the single choke point of the Strait of Malacca. This book attempts to analyse such issues in addition to assessing the opportunities that CPEC offers, and challenges that it faced with. This book will definitely prove to be a boon to teachers, students and research scholars.
