Why invest in Gwadar, in Gwadar properties?
Gwadar is a natural deep sea port city strategically located in the Arabian Sea at the opening of the Strait of Hormuz. It is the Gateway city to the $62 Billion China Pakistan Economic Corridor and is widely regarded as the flagship project of China's One Belt One Road initiative.
Gwadar Port has undeniable economic and strategic importance for Pakistan and China. It has been correctly termed as a game-changer for Pakistan because it will link China with markets in Central Asia and South Asia. Presently China is some 13,000 Km from Persian Gulf with a long shipping time of about 45 days. The China Pakistan Economic Corridor will shrink this distance to merely 2500 Km (80% reduction) and shipping times from China to Europe, will reduce from 45 days to 10 days and creates a great investment opportunity in Gwadar.
Construction began in June 2016 on the Gwadar Special Economic Zone, which is being built on 2,292 acre site adjacent to Gwadar’s port. The swathe of land was handed to China in November 2015 as part of a 43-year lease. China plans to spend in excess of $4.5 billion on a bouquet of projects including a new international airport, roads, power generation plants, hotels, infrastructure for the special economic zone.
Land prices in Gwadar have increased by over 500% in the last 24 months since China took over operations of the port. ONE Investments are the market leader in the UK for Gwadar land and property investment.
