KP’s Minister of tourism Atif Khan explores the Kumrat Valley:
Earlier, Forbes enlisted Pakistan among the 10 coolest places to go in 2019. In addition to this, the global media company, British Backpacker Society, solo travelers, and bloggers also believe that Pakistan is becoming a tourism hub.
Other factors attracting the tourists are the hospitable nature of Pakistan’s society, architectural, cultural and archaeological allures and mouth-watering food.
Govt’s Tourism Policy:
Pakistan is a melting pot of culture, cuisine, and people. Its majestic scenery, friendly people, and fast-improving tourism infrastructure offer some of the best tourism opportunities of the world. Prime Minister Imran Khan rightfully asserts that Pakistan could become one of the top tourist destinations of the world.
In its election manifesto, the incumbent government had put forward an ambitious agenda to promote and position Pakistan as Asia’s Best Kept Secret in the global tourism market.
The government promised to promote religious tourism, the historic Sufi sites across Punjab, Sindh, and Baluchistan, and to develop 20 new tourist destinations during its 5-year tenure.
The promotion of the tourism industry was placed as one of the government’s top priorities because tourism has a huge role to play in creating jobs.
The government also vowed to incentivize private sector investments in eco-tourism, open government guest houses, and other government buildings to the public.
This indicates the seriousness of the government to revive tourism in Pakistan as it was once a prominent tourist destination. During the past year, the government worked systematically on building a framework for the tourism sector, along with supportive partners and launched some initial schemes.
