President Dr. Arif Alvi says Gwadar will emerge as an economic hub by providing the shortest route for China and Central Asian Republics to trade their goods.
The President said after defeating terrorism successfully, Pakistan has shifted its emphasis from geo-politics to geo-economics.
He said unlike the world, Pakistan is acting as a harbinger of peace and morality which will bring about a good future for the country.
Recounting the positive indicators, the President said the economy has improved, construction sector growing and dollar-rupee disparity has been controlled.
He said the houses for the low-income sector are being constructed and the country is moving ahead positively on economic front.
Touching the Pak-India ties, he said Kashmir dispute is the main hurdle in normalization of the relations and instead of moving forward to resolve the dispute, India is issuing fake domiciles to around 2.5 million non-Kashmiris to change demography of the disputed territory.
He said despite all, Pakistan wants a peaceful solution to Kashmir dispute.
