Geo-strategic Location of Gwadar

Gwadar Port, situated on the shores of the Arabian Sea in the western province of Baluchistan, holds a strategic location that is pivotal for the expansion of trade in the region. This port is positioned at the mouth of the Persian Gulf, just outside the Straits of Hormuz. It plays a vital role in facilitating the transportation of over 17 million barrels of oil per day and handling a substantial volume of bulk, break-bulk, and containerized cargo., Gwadar’s strategic location and well-developed infrastructure position it as a crucial hub for economic development, trade, and connectivity, benefiting not only Pakistan but also the broader region and international trade networks.

Hub of International Trade Network

To the east, Gwadar Port shares proximity with the emerging economies of India and South East Asia. On land, the port serves as the starting point for the Pak-China Economic Corridor, creating vital connectivity to all major markets within Pakistan. This connectivity is expected to expand even further, reaching neighboring markets in China, Iran, Afghanistan, and other landlocked countries in Central Asia in the foreseeable future. This strategic positioning of Gwadar Port has significant implications for regional trade and economic development.
