“Today a new era of economic development has commenced from Balochistan’s port city Gwadar as International LPG trade starts,” Li said while addressing the inauguration ceremony. The terminal would spur economic activities in Gwadar which would benefit the local population through the creation of more jobs.
Deputy Commissioner of Gwadar retired Capt Mohammad Waseem, the GDA chairman and the CEO of Al-Qasim LPG Terminal lauded the initiative, saying Gwadar was going to turn into an international economic hub in near future.
“A new international airport is being established in Gwadar and power plant projects will speed up development in the port city,” Mr Waseem said.
