PM Imran Khan visited Naran on Monday to launch development projects to promote tourist spots in Pakistan. He stated that the government aims to do so to highlight a soft image of the country on social media for the world to see.
Speaking with news media in Naran, PM said that the northern areas of Pakistan have picturesque beauty and so much potential that the country can be turned into the world’s top tourist destination if we take eco-friendly steps for that purpose.
He arrived on a day-long visit to Naran to launch multiple tourism and environmental protection projects. The launch of a tourist emergency response service, tree planting along the bank of River Kunhar, trout breeding, the distribution of 550,000 biodegradable bags, the establishment of a waste collection system, and the delivery of motorbikes to Community River Rangers are just a few of the projects underway.
The premier reaffirmed that by keeping the laws in check, sustainable tourism can be promoted in Pakistan, which will eventually increase the influx of tourists in the country. This in return will help save the fragile ecosystem.
He added that God has blessed Pakistan beyond measure and to pay gratitude, we need to keep the environment clean and green.
The PM stated that Pakistan government’s Clean and Green initiative is to preserve the environment and to stop the citizens from throwing litter here and there in the green belts and around.
He expressed optimism that remedial efforts in the tourist sector will result in a revenue revolution.
