The Balochistan government has announced the establishment of seven tourist resorts to promote tourism in the province.
In a tweet on a social networking site, Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal said that “there are vast opportunities for investment and tourism in the coastal areas”.
He wrote that the government is paying special attention to the development and improvement of the coastal strip. Rs. 150 million has been included in the master plan for the improvement of the coastal strip.
Jam Kamal said that one trillion rupees had been allocated for the promotion of tourism in the province with the help of which seven tourist destinations would be constructed in Balochistan.
He further said that the coastal areas of Balochistan are the best for economic and social activities and well-equipped accommodation for tourists would be set up in Kund Malir.
It may be recalled that the Prime Minister while addressing a meeting of the National Development Council a day ago had said that in the past financial resources were provided to Balochistan but welfare was neglected.
The agenda of the meeting of the National Development Council was specifically on the plans for better use of water and water resources, agriculture, energy and border markets in the backward and remote areas of Balochistan.
