Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday spoke at the Pakistan Strategy Dialogue at Davos, Switzerland, where he said Pakistan was considered one of the most dangerous places in the world when his government took over but that “we had decided to partner with peace”.
As a result, the PM said, the first benefit Pakistan saw was in the field of tourism.
“We are one of the most tourism friendly countries and all this potential was untapped, especially the mountain areas,” he said.
The first impact was that tourism recovered in a year, he said. “We believe Pakistan can collect a lot of revenue from tourism.”
Earlier on Tuesday, Prime Minister Imran Khan held bilateral meetings with the leaders of Singapore and Azerbaijan on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland. He also met up with United States President Donald Trump who promised to help Pakistan with her tensions with India over Kashmir.
Tourism has picked up pace in Pakistan thanks to foreign and domestic bloggers. The blogs have helped create a more safe image for Pakistan and have also given access to others to the beautiful scenic places in Pakistan.
