The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor Turns Five

September 25, 2020

Episode Notes:

The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is now five years old. CPEC is a high-profile investment package in Pakistan worth an estimated $46 billion. Launched in 2015, it was initially billed as the flagship program of China’s Belt and Road Initiative. However, the program faces several challenges, including Pakistan’s chronic economic problems and its difficulty in repaying project loans.
