Gwadar port: No Jobs for locals? THE right of operation of the Gwadar Port has recently been given to China. At the national level, many people have appreciated the deal because they believe that China can operate the port more effectively unlike Singapore. However, the people of the province were not taken into confidence by the federal government before it took this decision. The port should be operated with care and local people should be taken into confidence and given priority in appointing staff at the port. As a result of this policy, the port will have a positive impact on the economy and will open new vistas for trade and industrial progress in the country.
