January 12, 2024

PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Culture and Tourism Authority (KPCTA) officially received 19 properties spread throughout the province on Thursday from the Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation (PTDC).

According to a statement released here, KP Caretaker Minister for Information and Public Relations, Culture, Tourism, Archaeology, and Museum Barrister Feroze Jamal Shah Kakakhel attended as the principal guest at a document signing ceremony that was held at the Peshawar Services Club in this respect.

During the occasion, the relevant paperwork was signed by KPCTA Director General Barkatullah and PTDC Managing Director Aftab Rana.

The acting minister of tourism emphasized in his speech that these assets would be crucial in boosting travel to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The minister stated that the effective completion of the crucial process of transferring these properties to the province under the 18th Amendment today was noteworthy.

Speaking of the properties’ historical significance, he claimed that their location and architectural style made them special. He expressed the expectation that these sites would be used and managed effectively, which would improve visitor accommodations while also bringing in more revenue for the province from tourism.

The caretaker minister responded to concerns from the media by saying that steps were being taken to boost tourism in the combined districts and that a three-day conference and other activities would be conducted soon.

He noted that during a recent symposium on the promotion of tourism in Chitral, significant recommendations were made by the attendees. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, according to the minister, has a special place in the globe for tourism. What’s needed now is to improve how we showcase this unique position to the outside world.
