Strategic Location of Pakistan


Pakistan emerged on the map of the world on 14th August 1947, as a hallmark result of the partition of Indian sub-continent into two sovereign states namely Pakistan and India. The total area of Pakistan is 796,096 square km and sharing its borders with China, Afghanistan, Islamic Republic of Iran and with India.

From strategic and economic point of view, Pakistan enjoys a key position in South Asia. Its coastline on the Arabian Sea serves as a central position, not only for trading with South Asian countries but also with Far East and beyond areas. Pakistan being strategically located, therefore the air route between west and east passes through the country; hence Pakistan could earn huge transit revenues by providing services and facilities to these transit flights. Moreover, it is also discovered that in Pakistan there are various untapped power resources such as minerals and natural gas, which can easily be exploited and transported to other countries, to generate higher revenues. In return this will bring enormous economic and financial benefits to Pakistan.

Pakistan can be divided into six major natural topographical areas, including Northern Mountain, Western Mountain, The Balochistan Plateau, Potwar Plateau, Indus Plain and Desert Areas. Each of these areas is vital for Pakistan, as some either help to attract tourism or some have their own economic and physical importance. Furthermore, Pakistan's most popular hill station includes Muree, Nathia Gali and Gora Gali, which lies on Himalayas and is of special interest for tourists.
Pakistan's climate can be divided into four seasons, winter, summer, late monsoon and post monsoon. This, results in seasonal variation in climate of Pakistan and in return, all sorts of fruits, vegetables and other agricultural crops can be harvested in Pakistan. Moreover, Pakistan has three major ports which include Keamari, Port Qasim and Gwadar Port. However, now there is great importance given to Gwadar port, as this is a deep water port and big ships can directly come to the harbor, hence saving a lot of cost and time. In addition, Gwadar can serve as a Centerport for Asia and currently it provides thousands of jobs and billions of rupees are circulated every year.

The fascinating valleys of Gilgit Baltistan symbolize a heaven on the earth. Five out of fourteen world’s highest peaks above 8000 meters including the second highest K-2 and some of the largest glaciers outside Polar region are located in this area. These glaciers and mountain ranges greatly contribute to the eternal beauty of whole Pakistan and making it fortunate enough to attract tourism, whole year round. There is no doubt about the fortune and resources, that nature as blessed us with. However, it is just a matter of effectively using these resources to gain maximum benefits for our country. We as young adults should utilize our skills, talent and work with full honesty for the betterment of this country and make it a better place to live in.
