In 325 BC Alexander the Great incidentally found the sea in this area on his way from India to Macedonia. The Portuguese found their way to India and captured several places along the Makran coast namely Gwadar and Jewani. Many invaders conquered the land, mostly the local rulers, including Hots, Rinds, Maliks, Buledais and Gichkis, exercised authority in the area as the conquerors had no intentions to stay there

After the division of the Indian subcontinent, areas except Gwadar and its surroundings joined the Balochistan. Till then, Gwadar was under control of Maskat. In October 1955, Makran was given the status of a district. In 1958, Gwadar and its surrounding area were reverted back from Maskat to Pakistan and were made a tehsil of Makran district. On 1st July 1970 Balochistan gained the status of a province, and Mekran became one of its 8 districts. On 1st July 1977, Makran was declared a division where it was divided into three districts, named Panjgur, Turbat (renamed Kech) and Gwadar. Gwadar was notified as a district on July 1, 1977 with its headquarters at Gwadar town. Gwadar has Five 5 important tehsils (Towns) which are,

Fisheries is the largest sector in Gwadar which is playing a vital role in the economy of Balochistan, it provide a significant supply of the sea food to Pakistan and also plays an important role in international sea food export market. Gwadar district also happens to be on the migration routes of the various varieties of fish that have a considerable demand for the local as well as international marine food markets.

3.2.1 Aquaculture Shrimp Farming

Coastal area of Gwadar, Kalmat, Jewani and Pishokan presents a viable environment for aquaculture development and shrimp farms. Shrimp farmers can earn a good return on their investment, two shrimp farms established by private sector in "Shaabi" and "Karwat" produced encouraging results therefore investing in shrimp's farms along creeks and bays in coastal areas can be a potential for aquaculture and fisheries.

3.2.2 Sea food Processors and Exporters:

There are more than 16 small and large sea food processors and exporters operating in different tehsils of the district. Most of them have established their processing plants in Gwadar city. Sea food processing in here mostly involves Washing, ballast freezing and packaging, whereas little or no initiative is done in other processing technologies i-e fish canning, sea food cooking etc. Worldwide USA, EU and Japan are the largest export market for the sea food industry. Due to high quality standards and assurances, Pakistan (Gwadar & Karachi products) is able to export 30-40 % of the sea food products to US and EU markets however the remaining portion is exported to China, Malaysia and Gulf countries.

Some of the leading sea food processors and exporters of the district Gwadar are given below.

Fish Harbors

 

Pasni Fish Harbour:

Government has established two fish harbors in District Gwadar. First fish harbor was constructed in Pasni. Pasni fish harbor has the facility of cold storages, fish fishing jetty, fish auction halls and open space for transportation, offices, hotels and accommodation for fishermen. Pasni fish harbor has the capacity to store more than 100 tones of fish catch at a time.

Gwadar Fish Harbour:

Gwadar Fish harbor has been established in 1990 under ministry of communication and working under Gwadar Port Authority, Gwadar fish harbor comprises of a modern fish auction hall carrying a capacity to handle more than 100 tons of sea food at a time.

3.2.5 Marketing

In Gwadar, three components make the marketing system of fisheries sector, they are

Sea Food Processors.

SMEDA Balochistan

District Profile - Gwadar

District Profile - Gwadar 16  Commission Agents and Purchasers of Sea food processors Boats owners.

Commission Agents and Purchasers of Sea food processors Boats owners.

Open Commission agents.

These components provide an efficient but not very effective market system of fisheries. There are two major players in making the existing system. First and the major player in setting up of market price are the sea food processor and most of the time the market follows the price set by the sea food processor. Every sea food processor places a paid agent or a commission agent in the market that handles the daily seafood catch trading.

Beside agents of sea food processors, broker also plays a significant role in marketing system. Broker most of the time is also the supplier of a sea food processor. A broker can set a market price only if he possesses a good quantity and Quality of the specie which is currently on a high demand i-e Shrimps and lobsters. Most of the brokers in fisheries sector in Gwadar are either Boat owners or they are a major lender to the fishermen.

Fishermen usually borrow money from the broker for a number of reasons, which include boat maintenance, repairing or renewing the fishing nets or loan for family matters. A broker will hold the all future catch of the fishermen as collateral for the loan to fishermen, he lends money on this understanding that all future catch will be sold to the broker in peak fishing season. By this method a broker can hold 4-5 boats.

3.2.6 Problems and Issues with the Sector

Fisheries sector is the key player for economic development of this region. Problems and issues faced by this sector are as follows.

Trawling pose major threat to the survival of the fishermen and fish processors in Gwadar. Illegal bottom trawling though banned by the Government is continued along the Gwadar coastal belt that destroys the whole breed of the various species.

Unavailability of cold chain from Boats to processors.

Lack of financing facilities i-e soft term loans for fishermen.

Lack of literacy and awareness in fishermen and boat owners to employ new trend and techniques in fishing.

Lack of government incentives in initiating development projects for fisheries sector.

Lack of proper marketing mechanism.

Lack of literacy and awareness regarding investment in aquaculture shrimp farming.

3.3

Agriculture Horticulture

Though, Agriculture and Horticulture is not a vital sector of the district as far as investment and SME’s are concerned, however, local population invest a part of their earning in this sector mainly to obtain fodder for the livestock. Limited Agricultural crops exist in the district.

The crops of the district include wheat, barley, mutter, pulse, melons, citrus, chikoo, coconut, tomatoes, jowar and mash, but the current production all these crops is near to none mainly due to scarce availability of water. Fodder is cultivated throughout the year. Cultivation areas of Gwadar district is scattered through out the district which include, Jewani, Kulanch, Pasni, Nalaint and Ormara.

Water is the scarce resource in the district. The major source of irrigation in Gwadar is streams and springs etc. Other significant sources are tube wells, operated by diesel, and open

Due to its production volume, only dates are exported to other parts of the country like Karachi, Quetta, and Sukkur. Date produce is sold on farm where a middleman buys the crop and further sells it out in the markets.

3.3.4 Problems and Issues

Due to its hot and arid climatic conditions agricultural sector cannot be developed to its potential , whereas there are few crops i-e Date , Oil seed and coconut which can bring good returns if invested with modern agricultural techniques. Major issues faced by this sector i.e,

Lack of road network.

Scarcity of Water, due to its climatic conditions and salinity level of under ground water in some areas.

Lack of literacy and awareness in farmers and land lords to employ new trend and techniques.

Lack of government incentives in initiating agricultural development projects.

Problems in access to finance.

3.4 Industries

There are more than 16 small and large sea food processors and exporters operating in different tehsils of the district. Associated with the fisheries sector cold storages and ice plants have also been established Jewani, Pasni, Surbander, Gwadar and Ormara. Water desalination plant has been established in Gwadar in 1996 by Gwadar mini port authority, and with recent developments projects construction of 4 more desalination plants have been initiated by Private and Public sectors. These plants will be established in Industrial Estate Karwat, Singhar Housing Scheme, and Surbander and in Gwadar city. In the Gwadar district water facility is scarce therefore mineral water manufacturing unit is another good investment area. There are two (2) mineral water manufacturing and bottling units.

3.4.1 Gwadar Industrial Estate.

The Government of Balochistan has developed an industrial estate in Gwadar to meet the demand for industrial plots in the city which is expected to have a substantial potential for industrial investment in view of the opportunities offered by the establishment of deep sea port and construction of major highways linking Gwadar with Karachi, Quetta, Iran and Central Asia.

Location of the project is 40Km from Gwadar on Mekran Coastal highway. Overall 3000 acres on the south of Mekran coastal highway has been planned for Gwadar Industrial Estate Town Planning on 1000 acres of land has been completed. Industrial plots have an area of 1, 2 and 5 acres that can be allotted individually or in combination.

In addition export processing zone authority has also initiated project for development an esport processing zone in Gwadar. Land of 1000 acres has already been allocated for the project at Karwat area.

3.5 Livestock

The valleys of Kulanch and Dasht are major small ruminant raising areas in the district Livestock farmers own herds of more than one hundred heads of small ruminants and they have regular pattern of seasonal migration. The livestock raising communities live in mountainous areas which are not easily accessible by road. Apart from the livestock-farming household, all the agricultural households in Gwadar raise different animals. An average household owns a couple of cows, a pair of bullocks or a camel for ploughing, sometimes a donkey as a beast of burden and several sheep and goats.

3.5.1 Poultary And Dairy

There are 2 poultry farms in Gwadar town, while the numbers of poultry farms which is insufficient to fulfill the poultry supply of the district, before construction of coastal highway poultry supply were fulfilled through Iran. At the moment poultry supply is mostly done from Karachi and other parts of Balochistan.

Private sector have established 2 dairy farms in Gwadar town which supplies milk products to the town, each farm has 20-30 milk producing cows, however most of dairy supplies are done from Karachi and other parts of Balochistan through road.

Poultry and dairy sector investment has a good potential in Gwadar district. Due to high feed and fodder prices, transportation and human resources this sector has not developed to its potential.

3.6

Handicrafts

3.6.1

Embroidery

Embroidery work is the main handicraft done by women of the area with excellent skill and craft. Mostly it is done on women’s dress for personal use. Some more skilled women receive orders to make dress for other women. This embroidery work is rarely sold out in markets. Cost of such embroidery ranges from rupees 500 to 7,000 and work can take 3 to 6 months for completion.

3.6.2 Sea Shell crafts

District Gwadar being a fisheries rich area also gives enormous amount of sea shells of various sizes, colors and styles as side product. However, this sector is still not exploited as a potential area of handicraft. This sector can also be a viable potential sector for economic

3.7 Real Estate

Projects of Gwadar Port and coastal highway developed the real estate market of the District to such an extent that in a time span of 6 years Gwadar has emerged as the third real estate area for investment after Islamabad and Karachi. Massive trading of Billions of rupees has been in the real estates by Local and foreign investors. Investment has been done and still continues in areas of Gwadar, Jewani, Kalmat, Pasni, Guns, and Pishokan.

Land has been brought by private sector investors investing in more than 100 real estate projects. 95% of the land of Gwadar, Jewani, Kalmat, Kappar and Pishokan areas is being brought either by private sector investors or being brought by government for potential development activity of Gwadar. Projects launched by private sector investors in Gwadar include Housing, Recreational, Commercial and Industrial schemes.

Government has introduced two residential and commercial projects which are Singhar housing scheme and Newtown housing scheme. Both the schemes spread to 4 Phases with residential plots ranging from 400 square yards to 1000 square yards. Both schemes have received encouraging response and more than 95% of the plots have been brought and owned by private individuals.

People already have constructed modern luxury banglows in new town housing scheme and private sector construction is going on at fast pace in the new town housing scheme. Because of its location and modern designs most of government and commercial organizations have shifted their offices in New town housing scheme.

3.8 Minerals

Mines and Minerals sector in district Gwadar does not have any significance to be a potential sector. Geological Survey of Pakistan and the department of minerals have not reported any minerals in Gwadar district.

The only mineral product of the district is ocean salt. Salt is obtained from sea or rain water. Small wells of 3-4 meters depth are dug near the sea shore and sea water is spread in panes made on plain surface. The usual dimension of the panes is 300 x 200 x 10 centimeters. Water dries up in 10 days and salt is collected. Each of the panes produces about 20 kilogram of salt which is sold at a rate of Rs.600 per 50-80 kg bag.

3.9 Tourism

District Gwadar as a coastal area has rich marine life and present viable opportunity for ecotourism. The district has untouched clear beaches which can be an attractive place for tourism. Kund Malir, Daraan, Asthola Island, beaches of Jewani, Guns and Ormara are some of the most beautiful tourist beaches.

Asthola Island is located at a distance of 150 kilometer from Gwadar tehsil. It is an internationally recognized wetland and has numerous species of aquatic creatures.

Hingol National Park is the largest natural forest of Asia, coastal highway run for 55 kilometers in the scenic mountains of this natural forest. Hingol National Park is also one

At present, 6 hotels and resorts are operating in Gwadar, a major break through in hotel and tourism industry is the construction of a 5 start Zaver Pearl Continental Hotel at Koh-e- Batill, opposite to Singhar Housing Scheme in Gwadar.

Potential exists for development of tourist resort and motels, seafood restaurants, country parks and beach sports recreation facilities. Ecotourism sector can be developed to its potential in Gwadar district as the number of tourist from Islamabad, Karachi and Lahore has remarkably increased due to the construction of coastal highway.

4 - POTENTIAL PROJECTS FOR INVESTMENT

Development projects of Mekran coastal highway and Gwadar Port have a special significance with reference economic development of this region a and future trade links with Central Asian Countries, Persian Gulf, East Africa, United Arab Emirates and North Western India. Gwadar will be projected to give Pakistan a new identity in the world economy by virtue of its finest location, development projects, recreation programs and Government’s special attention. There are number of potential areas for investment and development that include,

4.1

Fisheries

4.1.1 Fisheries, Fish Processing and Shrimp farming

Nature has blessed Pakistan with the coast that is full of finest species and it is the region for the cultivation of the seafood products that has high demand both at national and international level.

Shrimp farming is the cultivation of marine shrimp or prawns for human consumption. Pakistan Coastal areas geographical and ecological conditions favors inland shrimp farming and investors are coming in this sector due to its high turnover and short payback time. Government’s initiatives in establishing model shrimp farms in the coastal areas of Gwadar district and the establishment of hatchery at Pasni will unleash the potential for investment in shrimp farming in this region.

4.1.2 Ice Plant

Climate of Gwadar remains hot and humid for more than eight months a year, ice consumption both at domestic and industrial use is high, current ice factories are not enough to fulfill this demand. Moreover, there are 5 fish processing plants at Gwadar city and with the passage of time further investment is expected in this field, these plants require huge amount of ice for the preservation of catch fiches. The need of ice blocks is also increasing due to economic growth, as major buyers are other Businesses (dairy, bakery, hotel, etc.), who buy in bulk.

4.2

Horticulture

4.2.1

Date processing:

Balochistan province is known as basket of fruits; especially Makran district is famous for dates of special quality and different types having ready market both at national and international level. Unfortunately huge amount of dates are desecrated every year due to insufficient facilities such as cold storages and dates processing plants in the region. Whereas our neighbor country Iran is earning huge sum of revenues from the export of dates, there exist great opportunity for investment in dates processing plants, that will not only increase the life period and quality of dates cultivated but also with the packaging of international standard we can expected a very handsome amount of revenue from this business.

4.2.2 Oil palm cultivation:

Due to its long coast line and ideal location Gwadar district can be productive for cultivating palm oil trees, this product is having ready market both at national and international level.

4.3

Minerals

4.3.1

Stone Crushing

Over the last few years, the Construction sector has been registering strong growth rates in the district. Housing and construction is one of the major drivers of growth in more than 40 allied industries including stone crushing. In addition, for the building of roads and bypasses, there is a mass and consistent need of crushed stone across the country. Several projects are in progress and are being commenced shortly which will have high demand of crushed stone all over the country.

Constructions blocks are made locally at Gwadar from cement, Sand and crush etc. and crush is also used in the construction of building. Gwadar being a developing city, there great need for such materials and investors are coming at faster pace and earning decent return on their investment.

4.4

Livestock

4.4.1

Cattle/Sheep/Goats Fattening Center

Since nutrition is a serous limiting factor in the livestock industry of Balochistan with the result that many animals arrive at the market in less than optimal body condition with body weight on the lower end, there is a dire need to ensure feed availability round the year with proper protein contents for increasing livestock productivity rather then its numbers. Such a situation directs to adopt non–conventional feed preparation and feeding techniques like treatment of wheat/ rice straws and other crop residues with urea or ammonia, molasses bocks, silage making , concentrate mixtures with low cost formulae, feed lots, semi – intensive farming and ewe flushing etc. With the switching over to semi-intensive farming which would warrant stall/ supplementary feeding, non-conventional and economical

feeding techniques and improved genetic material, the livestock farming can become a cost effective enterprise with its down stream positive effects in the farming community.

4.4.2 Dairy Farms

There are only few dairy farms established in the district thus major portion of the milk is brought from Karachi in packaged or unpackaged form. Due to the perishable nature of the product and high demand milk prices are comparatively much higher in the district. An organized farming will be a relatively simple business for the local people.

4.4.3 Poultry Farm

Poultry farming in the district has got great scope for improvement. Poultry farming is not developed commercially, apart from some private poultry farms in urban areas. There are about 18 private poultry farms in the district.

4.5

Other Industries

4.5.1

Cargo Management projects:

Gwadar is well known for its newly built deep sea port, port is operational and its best time to invest in port management projects such goods transport, cargo etc.

4.5.2 Hotels, Restaurants and Resorts:

Gwadar is mainly famous for its clean and virgin beaches, unpolluted air and beautiful geographical location. Tourism sector is having very bright future there; people from all across country and from abroad come to Gwadar for recreational purpose. There are a number of opportunities in invest in hotels, restaurants and resorts.

4.5.3 Re-rolling mills:

Gwadar being developing city, steel demand has been growing steadily. Investment friendly policies of the Government have a special focus on Balochistan in general and Gwadar in particular. As a result of these policies, mega projects of Gwadar Port, Mekran Coastal highway and Mirani Dam have been initiated and completed. Gwadar has been converted into an emerging market for builders and real state investors.

Steel is a vital component of modern construction. Iron and steel is used widely in the construction of roads, railways and in infrastructure of bridges and buildings. To strengthen a construction structure, steel is used in mostly in the shape of Iron rods of varying lengths and sizes.

Owners and builders of the real estate development projects have to bring construction materials such as steel and cement etc from Karachi and other parts of the country. They are facing major problem in accessing the raw materials on timely basis, as a result the timely delivery of the project becomes very difficult, and both the parties’ i.e. Project owner and builders incur major financial losses.

4.5.4 PVC Products

Due to the number of construction projects in the district there is a good market for PVC Pipes. The pipes are used in residential, commercial and industrial projects. Gwadar port will also be beneficial for import of raw material.

4.5.5 Marine and automobile repair workshop:

Fishermen are shifting to fiber glass made boats and they are maintaining their boats regularly unlike they were maintaining in past. They realized the fact that without such active steps they can not meet the international standard for exporting their catches. Yamaha marine engine and fiberglass boat is going to establish a factory in the district that will unleash the opportunity for marine and automobile repair workshop.

4.5.6 Water sports centers, Country Parks and recreation facilities:

There exist a very good opportunity for setting up country parks and other recreational facilities at Gwadar, there is great gap of amusement facilities in Gwadar, and the population requires recreational facilities, easy to mobilize large number of visitors to the facility and spending capability of people of the area.

4.5.7 Renewable Energy: wind, Solar:

Power crises has spread all over the country in recent days, people are shifting towards generating their own electricity through generators etc. Power can also be obtained from Wind and solar Energy; these two sources are one of the most economical ways to generate power. Currently, GDA has implemented streets lights in Gwadar that are recharged by solar energy, this experience have proved very economical and efficient to obtain power from solar energy.

4.5.8 Seawater Reverse Osmosis Desalination plants:

Access to clean and clear drinking water is the second most important need for survival after oxygen. Today with growing population and extreme pollution is posing great threat to the clean air and clean water. Technique of converting sea water into drinkable water is known as Reverse Osmosis Desalination Plants, investment is this sector can be very productive due its product mix, such as converting saline water into drinking water, adding minerals, bottling the water and then marketing the final product. Drinking water is one of the major problems at Gwadar, almost 80 % of population purchase canned filter water (which costs Rs. 15/liter). This situation Cleary indicates the need for Reverse Osmosis Plant.

4.5.9 Hospitals and Clinics:

Lack of infrastructure and growing number of population has increased demand of medical facilities, which has direct impact on public & private sector health care centers. No access to clean water and proper sanitation facilities has posed a major threat to the health of masses. Moreover, the overlapping and harsh climate of the region causes major viral diseases through out the year. This creates a great demand for hospitals and clinics.

4.5.10 Bulk Oil Storage tankers:

One of the main advantages of Gwadar strategic location is that almost 60% of world oil is transited through this rout, today Gwadar port is operational, and there is immense need to install the bulk oil storage tankers. By storing and preserving black gold, investors can expect great return on their investment.
