    Pakistan's government is working with a Chinese company to expand its seaport at Gwadar, in Balochistan province.

    It involves relocating villages along the coast and moving the people to an alternative site.

    Officials say the development will boost the region's economy and transform the small fishing community.

    But the men and women who currently depend on the port for survival say they are worried about their livelihood.

    Al Jazeera's Kamal Hyder reports from Gwadar.
