Sardar Usman Buzdar, Punjab’s Chief Minister has approved the construction of 30 new tourist destinations in the province. The project is expected to provide jobs for 20,000 people as soon as it is completed, as well as a high tourist turnout that could produce up to Rs. 100 billion in annual revenue.
The ruins of ancient historical sites along the Indus Valley strip, Harappa, Kotli Sattian, Narh, and other venues across the Northern Punjab block will be built in recurring phases, according to reports.
The project is part of the current Tourism for Economic Growth Initiative, and it is intended to serve a diverse population pool in order to revitalize the economy. It will include a range of facilities, including roads and hotels that will be built or upgraded as needed to promote tourism services.
Apart from socioeconomic growth, the new project aims to divert tourists from common destinations in the north, such as Nathiagali, Murree, and Bhurban, to 12 or 14 newly established areas in Punjab such as the Salt Range, Chakwal, Jhelum, and Mianwali.
