“Pakistan is a young country as you know. It is 66 years old, but it is a cradle for one of the oldest civilizations in the world. Pakistan is a rich country in terms of the human capital, in terms of natural beauty and particularly it is one of the most splendid of all natural beauties in the world. It’s a country full of opportunities, possibilities and attractions. It is a country growing in many different directions but it is struggling in its region environment. However, despite all these regional challenges Pakistan is developing. Tourism is one area that develops not that fast but in the same time it has enormous potential. I hope that foreign tourists will be interested in this area and see themselves how can they help Pakistan.”
