Makran Statistical Division

Image: A new port has been constructed at Gwadar with expected completion in 2008. There has been Chinese and Omani investment in the area. Some speculation existed in the past that the port was meant to be the terminal of a natural gas pipeline from Turkmenistan, but unsettled political conditions in Afghanistan make the project unlikely at any time in the near future.


The major towns of Gwadar (40 000) in Gwadar District and Turbat (40 000) in Kech District are district capitals in the area.
