Pakistan Has Moved Up Six Spots In The World’s List Of Best Places To Visit
According to the World Economic Forum’s most recent study, Pakistan has raised six places in the International Travel and Tourism Development Index (WEF). The Travel and Tourism Development Index 2021 includes 117 nations.
The index rates countries based on a collection of variables and policies that enable each country’s travel and tourism industry to develop in a sustainable and resilient manner.
Pakistan is ranked 83rd in the international travel and tourism competitiveness index titled “Rebuilding a Sustainable and Resilient Future,” up from 89th in the index’s previous edition in 2019.
“A six-point increase in Pakistan’s ranking on the global travel and tourism index is quite a significant progress, and Pakistan is now among the countries in the Asia Pacific Region that have improved its ranking the most since 2019,” said Aftabur Rehman Rana, Managing Director of the Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation (PTDC).
He stated that over the last two years, the federal and provincial governments have made significant progress in improving the performance of Pakistan’s tourism sector by implementing a variety of measures to improve the overall condition of tourism services infrastructure, business environment, safety and security, health and hygiene, ICT readiness, and socioeconomic resilience and conditions.
“Although we have achieved good progress, we still need to do a lot more in the coming years to further improve the performance of the tourism sector in Pakistan, which has a huge potential to play a key part in the overall socio-economic development of Pakistan,” he added.
Overall, Japan topped the most recent edition of the index. Japan is followed by the United States, Spain, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Singapore, and Italy, all of which are listed in the top ten indexes for Travel and Tourism Development.
