China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is a framework of regional connectivity. CPEC will not only benefit China and Pakistan but will have positive impact on Iran, Afghanistan, India, Central Asian Republic, and the region. CPEC is thus perceived as a journey towards economic regionalization in the globalized world and is seen as a hope of better region of the future with peace, development and growth of economy. However, while this seminal project has many opportunities, there are associated challenges too. Going with the tradition of NUST in highlighting issues of national and strategic importance, a 3-day seminar titled “CPEC – Harnessing the Opportunities and Addressing the Challenges” is being arranged from 10 to 12 April 2018 at NUST, Sector H-12, Islamabad.
