Gwadar is located on the very entrance leading to the Persian Gulf, on the western part of Makran in Baluchistan. The distance between Gwadar and Karachi is estimated to be almost 715km. Gwadar is located at the point of inter junction of three most economically powerful regions of the world, Middle East, Central Asia and South Asia.
