Abdul Ghafoor Khan, PTDC Managing Director expressed hope that Pakistan would soon be among the top tourist destinations of the world.

Khan said that PTDC is planning to participate in international travel and tourism exhibitions in collaboration with provincial tourism organizations, airlines, hoteliers and tour operators. This will assist in building awareness about Pakistan, and also increase influx of tourists into the country. To quote Khan, “To increase the number of rooms in existing PTDC motels, we have contacted manufacturers of prefabricated structures and soon new rooms will be added to Naran, Ayubia and other prominent motels.”

Khan said that tourism industry business in Pakistan has seen a 40% increase with flow of tourists in the current season. PTDC motels in the northern areas and Murree are doing good business due to increase of domestic visitors from across the country. PTDC motels in other areas of Pakistan are also reportedly doing brisk business.
