Gwadar Port

|en.sd-port.com |Updated: May 12, 2020

Country: Pakistan
Signing Date: April 23, 2015 with Qingdao Port of Shandong Port Group

The Pakistan government has adopted the landlord concept for development of the Gwadar Port. In practice, this means that Pakistan will drive the overall development of the port and will raise the funds for developing general port infrastructure (primarily dredging of access channels and construction of breakwaters), while private sector investors will be the primary source of funds for developing terminals and cargo handling capacity.

Reputable private investor-operators will be sought on a build-own-transfer (BOT) basis for the design, construction and operation of the various terminals to be developed in the future. BOT agreements will be strictly on a concession-basis only, with no allowance for cross-share-holdings between the landlord-regulator and the terminal operators.

In the longer term, as much as possible, different cargo types will be handled by dedicated terminals. This will allow terminals to be developed and operated by dedicated operators who specialize in particular operations.
