e. Pakistan will be strong in SAARC
f. Chabahar port will be facing a fierce competition
g. Gawadar deep sea port and Chinese presence will threaten India’s interests
h. China will get much needed respite from Strait of Mallaca

E. Implications for the World
a. China’s rise and growing regional influence makes US apprehensive
b. China’s presence at Gawadar and Strait of Hormuz, main US supply line
c. China integration with Europe through BRI and CPEC

F. Conclusion
well, one who has studied cpec in detail will guide you better however my analysis on the basis what i have learnt from newspaper/news channels

1. 2nd point was required to be made in waht is cpec? BRI and total 6 no of corridors. cpec is one of them,
2. connectivity for what? why? mode of connectivity ( roads, rail, sail)
3. why pakistan is part of corridor? pak geo location, strategic value should have been discussed
4. investment by whom? chinese investors and the point of loan etc is found missing
5. pakistan govt steps for cpec

6. socio economics inplication for pak
economic activity, investment, industial zone, emoloyment, gdp improvement, infrasturcture, cultures sharing etc were not discusssed

internal reservations of provinces, political parties, role of parliament etc were ignored

7, implication for region world was not properly highlighted

8. impact of treaty/ int laws

9. propagation and rebuttal by pak govt

many other points should have been discussed.

in my view, your outline is 50/50 but chances of paasing the paper still exist. giving analysis for your other attempts and improvement.
allah apko kamyab kray.
