China Pakistan Economic Corridor Reinvigorating Blue Diplomacy by Linking Eurasian Continental Plate with Indo-Australian Oceanic Plate
Dubai Port World has always dominated the trade through strait of Hurmoz and has been influencing the shipment of energy resources through its ports. However the emergence of Gwadar Port as a gateway to strait of Hurmoz has started a competition among regional ports. Interests of regional and extra regional players in Central Asian hydrocarbon reserves have invigorated the value of Gwadar Port. The Port as a pulsating regional economic hub has caused the regional and extra regional powers to grow premeditated and infra structural growth with Gwadar Port that has become a centre piece of Chinese One Road One Belt Initiative and China Pakistan economic Corridor to reach the energy rich Central Asian Republics, Africa and Europe. However regional countries like Iran and Dubai Port World have interests to keep Gwadar Port out of competition as due to its location as a link between Strait of Hurmoz, Afghanistan, Central Asia and China. Gwadar can dominate the regional ports so Pakistan should address the regional countries pragmatically to turn Gwadar as a regional energy corridor.
