BEIJING, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 16th Nov, 2023) Pakistan’s eight tour operator companies have showcased the country’s rich tourism potential at the three-day China Outbound travel & Tourism Mart (COTTM) exhibition in Beijing.
State Minister for Tourism and SAPM on Youth Affairs Wasi Shah in his statement said that Pakistan’s participation in this leading tourism mart will help strengthen the tourism exchange between the two countries and help in developing B2B linkages between the tour operators of both sides.
He further said that the friendship of Pakistan with the brotherly nation of China was stronger than mountains, deeper than oceans and sweeter than honey, whereas Pakistan welcomed its Chinese friends to invest with open arms in the country.
Aftab Rana, MD PTDC said that PTDC officials along with a delegation of eight tour operator companies are participating in China Outbound Travel and Tourism Mart which will be greatly helpful to build B2B linkages between the tour operators of both countries and as a result, tourist traffic between the two countries will further increase.
PTDC has been working with our Pak Embassy in China and the China Embassy in Islamabad to create business-to-business linkages in the tourism sector. During the past year, we have arranged several online meetings and webinars with them and the good news is that now China has decided to open inbound group tourism to Pakistan from China.
