KP Will Send Tourism Police to Thailand for Training
At the meeting, Atif said they were planning to set up a special police department dedicated to the tourism industry.
“The tourism police will protect and facilitate tourists,” he said, adding that they would receive professional training from Thailand.
The Thai delegation informed participants about how their department has contributed to the promotion of tourism in the country since its inception in 1999.
The meeting was informed that Thai tourism has increased exponentially because visitors receive the best facilities in the country. For this, the Minister proposed to send tourism police to Thailand for training.
He informed participants that his ministry was repairing and rehabilitating old tourist sites, as well as exploring and developing the new ones.
“The FP government will develop 20 new tourist destinations with the best facilities and will also improve existing people,” Atif Khan said.
The delegation visited the Heritage Trail, Gor Khattri and Sethi House meeting.
