Collaboration With Beijing To Boost Local Tourism

Pakistan is one of those countries in the world that are blessed with a diverse inventory of tourism attractions. It is based on the picturesque endowments of natural landscape and features biodiversity and rich culture and heritage.

The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is opening hundreds of new investment opportunities across the country. This was stated by the Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation (PTDC) Managing Director Aftabur Rehman Rana in an online consultative B2B (business-to-business) webinar between tour operators of Pakistan and China.

The two nations have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to promote tourism under which, both sides can collaborate to develop the industry and lift it to new heights.

He further underlined that the government has introduced a package of initiatives to promote tourism in Pakistan including formation of National Tourism Coordination Board, introduction of e-visa facility for 191 countries, opening of Skardu airport in Gilgit-Baltistan for international flights and enhancing domestic flight operations.
