Gwadar has great importance than other regional ports

ISLAMABAD: Former Federal Secretary Petroleum Dr. Gulfaraz Ahmed has said that importance of Gwadar port will further increase with the construction of Gwadar-Kashgar economic corridor.

Talking to Radio Pakistan, he said that UAE does not want development of Gwadar port because it desires to maintain the importance of Dubai Port.

Similarly, Iran developed Port of Chabahar to devalue Gwadar. He, however, said that Gwadar port has great importance than all these ports if it is properly developed.

He said the present government still has four years and it can develop the port properly.
