In the Media: EFSAS' analyses Beijing's "new guidelines" regarding CPEC funding.

Despite all the speculation regarding corruption in the Pakistani Government, it seems that China’s decision to stop its funding is a ‘temporary’ measure to reassert Chinese control over CPEC projects until it decides to release new guidelines. In addition, Beijing is keen to give the Pakistani Army the lead role in the CPEC projects as Pakistani Ministries charged with carrying out the projects have incurred delays because of infighting.
