The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is a mega national project to transform the entire economy of Pakistan. All four provinces including Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Kashmir will reap benefits of development, regional connectivity, and integration irrespective of their geographical size and population.
Benefits for KP province are enormous. After Gilgit-Baltistan, it is KP that will mostly benefit from the project before the connectivity reaches Punjab Sindh, and Balochistan. Let’s observe the following facts and see how KP is benefited from the CPEC so far.

The Karakoram Highway (KKH) starts from Havelian in Hazara Division. Its up-gradation has already been done. The project is of national importance. Second, a railway track will be built between Havelian to Kashgar.
