It should be noted that China has made a lot of investments for development in the Gwadar region of Pakistan, which seems to be one of the most potential regions of Pakistan. If Iranian public and private companies do not try to enter the Gwadar market, come and in terms of proximity to the border is the best conditions for our beloved country Iran, Gwadar market will be fully available to Chinese companies.
It is worth mentioning that according to the conversation with the Chinese companies in Gwadar, it seems that the Chinese companies have a plan to build a power plant to supply electricity to the Gwadar area and nearby areas, which will not be implemented as soon as possible.
In case of non-implementation of the second part of Pakistan Gwadar project in the first phase (including the construction of the remaining 220 kV transmission line and GIS 132/220 kV substation) as well as the start of construction of the power plant by the Chinese, electricity supply to Gwadar region from Iran through The existing transmission line in Iran will be stopped, which will result in a significant reduction in the volume of electricity exports from Iran to Pakistan, as well as greater dependence of the Gwadar region of Pakistan on China.
