ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to PM on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Resource Development Zulfi Bukhari on Thursday said that the government is devising a policy to uplift the tourism sector.
Addressing a workshop on national tourism, he said the policy will prove to be a milestone in the promotion of the tourism sector.
Bukhari said the government is taking measures as per international standards in the tourism sector so that it can contribute to the country’s development.
Earlier on December 8, Bukhari, while speaking to journalists, had said that the government has chalked out a comprehensive plan based on Egyptian model to develop tourism sites across the country.
Bukhari had said that tourists’ destinations in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa would be developed to give the industry a new headway.
He said: “We are in consultations with an Egyptian company for materializing this initiative as soon as possible.”
Bukhari had said Executive Chairman of Orascom Telecom Media and Technology Naguib Sawiris recently held a meeting with Prime Minister Imran Khan and expressed the keenness to invest in diverse fields like mining and tourism.
He said around two billion dollars of investment is expected from the Egyptian company in multiple sectors.
