ISLAMABAD: Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) Chief Minister Khalid Khursheed called on Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday and discussed in detail the mega project to convert the whole of GB into a tourist place of international standard.
Under the project, all urban and rural areas of GB would be reorganised through a master plan.
As well as the introduction of house plans, street system, sewerage, and clean drinking water, the project includes the provision of basic amenities for the facilitation of tourists at various places.
Under the project, the local population would be provided basic facilities, including quality education and healthcare on a priority basis. The project, which has the potential of converting the GB tourism sector into an industry of billions of dollars, will also create ample job opportunities for the local people.
The prime minister appreciated the proposed project and directed to present a comprehensive strategy in that respect by February.
