ISLAMABAD: A delegation of the US investors has announced to invest one-hundred million dollars in the tourism sector of Pakistan.
The announcement was made during a meeting between the US delegation and Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Ali Amin Khan Gandapur in Islamabad.
The meeting decided to establish tourism centers in Skardu and different other areas of Gilgit-Baltistan.
Speaking on the occasion, Ali Amin Khan Gandapur said the federal government had decided to establish Skardu Airport according to the global style.
He said the incumbent government was taking steps on emergency basis to promote and develop tourism under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Famous American vlogger and traveler Eva Zu Beck has said that Pakistan had the potential become the top tourist destination of the world.
In an interview with Forbes, the foreigner girl who all alone visited the entire Pakistan for 10 months said that she had never thought of visiting the country even though one of her friend had once invited her here but the talk just evaporated in a laugh, nevertheless this served as a catalyst for the tour. She said she was not interested in visiting the popular places like Thailand and Mali and she wanted to visit the places which were less explored by tourists, so that’s how she decided to visit Pakistan.
Eva Zu Beck, who has 331,000 YouTube subscribers, 385,000 Instagram followers and 463,502 Facebook page followers, has visited more than 60 countries.
Talking to Forbes, she said, “Nobody had ever asked me to start promoting Pakistan as a travel destination; nor was this part of my plan at all. But while traveling and creating content about everything I saw, I guess this is what ended up happening – unknowingly, unwittingly, unexpectedly, but in a pretty wonderful and life-changing turn of events.”
