Planning Minister Ahsan Iqbal on Tuesday directed the Balochistan government to revise its PC-1 before the next Central Working Development Party (CDWP) meeting in order to complete the Gwadar Safe City Project (GSCP) in six months.

The minister issued the directives while chairing a steering committee meeting to review progress on the GSCP.

It is noted that the Punjab Safe Cities Authority (PSCA) had already signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for providing technical and operational support to the Gwadar Safe City Project and to the government of Balochistan which is the main sponsoring agency of the project.

During the meeting, the Balochistan chief secretary briefed the minister about the current status of the project. The minister while reviewing the progress directed the provincial government to hold a meeting next week with the PSCA while following their model which remained successful in Punjab.

It was informed that equipment had been taken for this project and further progress was underway. The minister directed the stakeholders to integrate it with the GCSP and there should be no overlapping.
