“This is a place of arrival of tourists from all over the world. That is why we decided to develop this village as a pilot village, ”he said, informing the government of upcoming plans.
“Tourists will agree to stay here, so hotels and resorts will also be built as part of a public-private partnership,” said the Prime Minister.
He added that the small village would soon be “on the world map”.
“Pakistan is also full of ancient tourist attractions like Turkey. In Pakistan, we have remnants of the Mughal civilization, but unfortunately, the previous government did not develop this tourist spot properly.”
“Turkey generates $ 40 billion a year from tourism, while Malaysia generates $ 20 billion from marine tourism”
“Even though Pakistan has the same potential, but no one wins over Turkey and Malaysia,” said the Prime Minister.
