  1. I would like to share that Pakistan ranked 125th out of 136 countries regarding tourist arrivals as per 2017 World Economic forum’s Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report. The steps being taken by TCKP is highly appreciative and there is a need to increase the influx of foreign tourists. It is to be noted that Spain stood 1st, France 2nd, Germany 3rd, India 40th and our position is 125th. I would request TCKP to take bold steps regarding tourism esp in KPK so that we could improve our ranking in the global market. It would also help in alleviating poverty, increase in employment, increase in foreign remittances
