Balochistan Govt Wants to Turn Beaches into Tourist Spots

The government of Balochistan is working on a comprehensive policy for developing tourist spots along the coastal belt.

Balochistan has a coastal belt stretching over 700 km offering scenic views to the tourists. However, due to lack of infrastructure and facilities, the mineral-rich province has failed to exploit its beaches.

In this regard, Chief Minister of Balochistan Jam Kamal presided a meeting of the Balochistan Coastal Development Authority (BCDA) in the provincial capital.

Gadani, Pasni, Jiwani, Kund Malir and Haft Talar or Astola Island in the Arabian Sea, are some of the spots that have immense potential if developed properly, BCDA officials apprised Kamal.

Jam Kamal said that transforming the beaches into tourist spots will attract more tourists which would boost the local economy, create employment opportunities, and help small businesses.

Director General BCDA lauded the governments’ initiative terming it beneficial for both the province and country.

Regarding Kyarr Typhoon, Jam Kamal directed the Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) to undertake necessary safety and preventive measures to protect the lives and property of the citizens. Kamal ordered PDMA to stand-by until Kyarr Typhoon dies down.
