CPEC: First shipment of CPEC to arrive in Pakistan from China 

Hundreds of Chinese trucks loaded with goods rolled into the Sost dry port in Gilgit-Baltistan on Monday as a multibillion-dollar project between Pakistan and China formally became operational.

The shipment arrived more than two weeks after the first Chinese ship docked at Gwadar port that is the centre of the $46 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project.

The corridor is about 3,000-kilometre long consisting of highways, railways and pipelines that will connect China’s Xinjiang province to the rest of the world through Gwadar.
