 Development of the China Pakistan Economic Corridor is a fulcrum of the One Belt One Road Initiative through which China seeks to realise the ‘Chinese Dream’ to be a global power and a regional hegemon. The Corridor connects China’s Western Xinjiang with Pakistan’s Makran Coast, traversing through one of the most challenging geographic as well as human terrain that would require extra-ordinary engineering resources to execute, massive amounts to fund and extreme political acumen to manage the untameable societal fissures. That indeed is a tall and complex order.

The Corridor brings up a host of strategic adversities to India. While pumping-up Pakistan’s innate anti-Indian dogma and China’s compulsive India-averseness, the Corridor violates India’s sovereignty, even if disputed, over the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, and consolidates the duo’s political nexus with conjoined military capabilities against India. India’s problems are further exacerbated when the Initiative consolidates Pakistan’s illegal occupation of North-Western Kashmir and inter alia seals the severance of India’s traditional land connectivity’s with Afghanistan and the Central Asian Republics.

This Book, besides describing the plans and challenges of construction and gainful management thereafter, highlights that since China believes in crystallising its ‘dream’ with the backing of political, and by implication, military power, it is obvious that the Initiative would have more than just purely economic consequences.
