In a meeting of The Parliamentary Committee on China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) presided over by Sher Ali Arbab, the Aviation Division secretary told the panel that the project has been postponed till October 2023.

The China Airport Construction Group informed the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCAA) about the new time limit for the project, deferring the project funded by the Chinese company.

Sources say that the parliamentary committee is pushing for further rationalisation of the project’s timeline so the airport is completed as soon as possible.

“We have to place it at high priority therefore no effort should be spared in resolving all the outstanding issues of clean water, electricity, infrastructure and livelihood faced by the people of Gwadar,” the chairman of the committee said.
