Abstract: The China–Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is a mega development plan in the South Asian region with the mutual cooperation of Pakistan and China. However, CPEC projects are still in the preliminary phase, and scholars and policymakers have continuously assured that CPEC projects will boost the economy of Pakistan through business creation and immense employment opportunities. This study investigated the influence of CPEC projects on the community lifestyle of local Pakistani citizens. The samples were gathered using an online survey from 335 respondents living in Pakistan. Most of the hypotheses supported by the existing data set showed the positive responses of local Pakistani citizens toward CPEC projects. The findings of this study will help government officials and the representatives of the CPEC understand the attitudes of the host community and their cooperation for the development of CPEC projects.
