China Plans to Make Pakistan its Economic Colony

China's plan is to make Pakistan as an economic colony in the future. According to a report by the Pakistani newspaper Dawn, China has leased thousands of acres of agricultural land to China for the Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project on which it will set up demonstration projects and fiber-optic systems. These proposals for CPEC confirm that Pakistan will become the economic colony of China. China's Xinjiang Province via CPEC will be connected to Gwadar in the Arabian Sea in Balochistan.

This plan of China will have far-reaching implications and this will deepen infiltration into Pakistan's economy. This will also affect India as Pakistan's sovereignty will almost end and China will have effective control over it. In this way, China will be closer to the east along with India's western border.

China is going to get thousands of acres of agricultural land lease for projects like irrigation technology, advanced seed seed development. From Peshawar to Karachi, a comprehensive system of monitoring and surveillance will be created, under which 24-hour video recording of roads and busy markets will be done.

Fiber optic will not only be used for the Internet but it will also be used in the broadcast of the TV. According to the proposal for CPEC, China will use the mediums of TVs to popularize Chinese culture in Pakistan.

The voices in Pakistan are also rising in opposition to CPEC, but the government says it will bring new economy and will benefit the citizens. Critics of the project, especially Gilgit-Baltistan and Balochistan, feel that it is encroaching on their land and culture. It is notable that Gilgit-Baltistan's Chief Minister did not participate in the conference on the One Belt One Road organized in Beijing.

According to the report of Dawn, the proposal for CPEC will increase the intrusion of Chinese companies and Chinese society in the society as well as in most sectors of Pakistan's economy. It is reported in the report that China's first priority is to reach the full supply chain of the agro-based economy.
