Islamabad: The Ministry of Information and Broadcast has prepared a comprehensive plan to set up an international standard radio station in Gwadar, reported a news source. This will extend the broadcast of Radio Pakistan to Iran.
According to the report, the Government of Balochistan has been informed in writing that the Government of Pakistan is looking to set up a radio station in Gwadar since the importance of the city due to the China Pakistan Economic Corridor has increased. Responding to this, Balochistan Chief Minister has also allocated 50 kanals of land for setting up the facility.
The sources also claim that funds under Public Sector Development will be allocated in the 2018-19 budget for this radio station, which is also likely to become operational during this year. The radio station will broadcast local news and dramas in regional and Chinese language.
