Short film about dedicated Pakistani construction worker wins big in China

A short film about a Pakistani construction worker at the Dasu Dam in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has won an award at the second Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) Short Video Competition in China. The contest aims to share the stories of builders and communities involved in BRI — Beijing’s multibillion dollar push to develop geopolitical ties through infrastructure and ports.

The Dasu Dam hydropower project on the Indus River near Dasu in Kohistan district is a part of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) under the BRI.

The awarded film featuring Pakistani worker Naseer was submitted to the competition by Hubei-based Gezhouba Group Company, which is developing the hydroelectric gravity dam in Dasu.

“Naseer’s work at the Dasu Dam has changed the lives of his family and enables his kids to study at school,” Global Times Online reported.
