China Pakistan Economic Corridor is an important milestone which provides opportunity to host strategic investment in Pakistan, primarily in infrastructure and power projects. At the same time, it has shown its potential to directly and indirectly influence the employment. In this perspective, it is significant to understand the perception of employees working in CPEC projects. Accordingly, the aim of the current study is to analyze perception of employees of Sahiwal Power Project and Quaid-e-Azam Solar Power projects. The study employed the descriptive analytical narrative methods at first stage. Then, it adopted OLS estimation procedure to estimate the impact of various relevant indicators on perception of workers about employment opportunities. Primary data is based upon structured questionnaire of employees of the projects on sites whereas the sample selection criterion is statistically rigorous. Using Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and response to relevant questions, four indices are constructed for opportunity in CPEC (CO), social change (SC), coal projects (CP) and employment opportunities (EO). The other determinants of EO are education level and area of belonging. The results suggest that policy makers should focus more on developing the skill level of labor force so that more benefits can be accrued from the investments in various projects. It can be made easy through developing close linkage between the universities and industry.
