This was the start of the period that would be epochal in the history of Pakistan, as an era of economic prosperity and global integration, she said in a statement.
The minister said the prime minister had inaugurated the start of trade operations through cargo ships from Gwadar port.
The government of Pakistan under the leadership of PM Nawaz Sharif had opened a corridor of progress and development for Pakistan, especially for the province of Balochistan, she added.
