World Bank Keen To Help Pakistan Boost Its Religious Tourism
The essence of cultural and traditional practices in Pakistan is well known. The country is also known for its ancestral and ancient shrines, holy places and buildings which hold sacred and sentimental value for people of different faiths and beliefs. The Sikhs are bound to tour Pakistan for the legacies that remain in the form of shrines in Pakistan, hence the number of Sikh tourists continues to increase.
With the right strategies to tighten the security situation, smoothing of the application process, raising the quota and offering other facilities, the economy of Pakistan can be positively affected by revenue generation of 295 million per year. The 50 billion project has managed to bring together meetings between interested parties from Pakistan with World Bank representatives in the upcoming month in Islamabad.
Pakistan, being home to some religiously significant pilgrimage and holy sites to Buddhists and Hindus as well, can certainly benefit from the employment generation. The Indus Valley Civilisation and Bronze Age Civilisation are able to catch the interest of billions of people around the world. Therefore the provincial government of Punjab has already started appointing bodies to concentrate on the implementation of the benefiting venture, especially in Punjab.
