Prime Minister Imran Khan will arrive in Lahore on Friday (today) for a day-long visit.

According to the details, PM Imran Khan, during his visit, will hold important meetings with Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar, Governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar, high officials and other noted officials.

Punjab CM Usman Buzdar will brief Imran Khan about the provincial matters. The prime minister will also chair a meeting pertaining to universal health coverage plan. He will also inaugurate “inspector-less regime” program to facilitate the industries and factories.

Prime Minister Imran Khan will also perform groundbreaking of Sheikhupura-Gujranwala road today.

The project will be completed at a cost of over Rs 5 billion. The 43 kilometre-long road will be built under Public-Private partnership.

The road that will connect the two industrial cities of Punjab will be maintained by a private company for the next 25 years after its construction.

Back in December 2020 Imran Khan launched the Billion Tree Tsunami Honey Project in Islamabad.

Under the Billion Tree Tsunami Honey Project, one million hectares of Pakistan’s forests will produce seven types of honey.

Whereas, the production of honey will increase from 12,000 metric tons to 70,000 metric tons. Pakistan will be able to export honey worth Rs 45 billion annually to different countries.  Furthermore, the Billion Tree project will create job opportunities for 70,000 to 80,000 people.

It is pertinent to mention here that in July this year, World Economic Forum (WEF) in its report said that Honey production in Pakistan is on the rise as beekeepers reap a dividend from the government’s program to expand forests. It said that 3.5 million trees were planted on 6,000 acres (2,428 hectares) in Changa Manga.
