The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is a "game-changer" mega project that offers colossal developmental changes at all levels in Pakistan. It is not just an economic project but has many dimensions to add to the cultural, political and societal landscape of the two countries. The geo-economics of CPEC remains crucial for the realization of 21st century as "the century belonging to Asia". Pakistan and China, have a history of close state-to-state relations at various bilateral and multilateral forums. The flagship project of Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) provides the same for a people to people and society interaction, which can allow Pakistan to learn from the best practices of the 'Chinese Dream'. The paper examines primary and secondary literature from a qualitative approach to study the 'trickle down effects' of CPEC in various branches of public and private sectors of Pakistan.
