Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif says Gwadar port and CPEC projects would open new vista of prosperity by enlarging the scope of employment opportunities for the masses, reported Radio Pakistan.

Addressing a ceremony at Sialkot on Sunday, Asif said that Gwadar port would emerge as a busiest port and play a dominating role in ensuring drastic economic stability of the country as well as in the region.

Asif said the government is utilizing all available resources to improve means of communication in order to bring far-off and neglected areas at par with the developed parts of the country.

He said under the programme 1,800 KM long roads had been constructed in Balochistan for improving and linking downtrodden areas with the developed parts of the province.

Asif said that Senate's and general elections would be held on time and urged the people to use their right to vote during the general elections for bringing about revolutionary changes in the country.

He also said, due to effective policies of the PML-N government, 10,700 MW electricity had been added to the national grid and now there is no load shedding in the country.
