Key road linking Pakistan with Afghanistan opens in Waziristan

Pakistani army chief Gen. Raheel Sharif inaugurated a key road linking Afghanistan and Pakistan in the South Waziristan tribal region in a bid to revive the local economy in the country’s tribal regions and northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

The Central Trade Corridor (CTC) is a strategic road in facilitating trade between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Years of militancy and violence have adversely affected economic activities in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).

Being built by army engineers and funded by donor countries, the CTC is an international standard 705-km-long road network through the southern parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA.
