The most important Social base structures in Balochistan are Education, being healthy, and Water Supply in which social marginal amount produced goes over limits private marginal amount produced. As an outcome of that, private monies put into business of Balochistan are likely to fall far short of what is needed. It is necessary for the state to give the controlling of money and other amount needed to make complete resources for the take-off of such social base structure of Balochistan.

The Economic infrastructure of Balochistan is largely based upon producing of natural gas, Coal, Chromite, lead, sulphur and ball of polished stone or glass.

Fisheries are always one of the best ways to change Socio-economic infrastructure of Balochistan. Large number of people in Makran are dependent on this field, earning money to fulfill their basic needs. The people always export and import fish and other things in boats through Behr-E-Baloch to international countries (Masqat, Oman, Iran etc) to increase financial support of country. They pay annual tax for everything to state.

China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) can bring a revolutionary change in Socio-economic infrastructure of Balochistan. It links up Sahil-E-Baloch with international countries.

However if the start is very strong, any structure made on it is likely to make ready goes on and unchanging services for the able to see beforehand future.

It is a big question mark in front of the big developmental talks of government. It is their basic right to provide them pure drinking water. Government of Balochistan and CM Nawab Sanaullah Zehri must take action and make the easy access to pure drinking water for the residents of Gwadar.
