Published 2021-03-29

Abstract

This article relates to the Chinese multidimensional One Belt One Road Initiative (OBOR). One of the aspects of our research is the manifestation of cultural social relations between China and Pakistan. We have tried to prove that there is every likelihood that cultural onslaught of Chinese society will clash in the long run with the traditional Islamic society of Pakistan. CPEC has an economic potential. China's intention is to expand its dominance in the region, where as Pakistan will be in a position to move forward from its stagnant economy. We cannot forget the results of intermingling of socio-cultural norms, values and traditions. It may change the rules of the game. Under the canopy of euphoria, identity must not be forgotten. There is no doubt that regional connectivity would ultimately bring regional prosperity but there are serious socio culture impediments
