    23 sites identified to boost tourism in Punjab

    A study commissioned by the World Bank has identified 23 selected tourist sites across the province of Punjab to delineate the engagement of youth and women in the tourism sector who remain under-represented in most economic activities and policy thinking.

    The World Bank has been engaged by the Punjab government to provide technical and financial assistance in catalysing tourism’s growth multiplier in the province. This support has been launched through the bank-assisted Punjab Tourism for Economic Growth project.

    The identified sites were:

    1. Derawar Fort (#Bahawalpur)
    2. Shrine of Hazrat Syed Ahmed Sultan Sakhi Sarwar (#DeraGhaziKhan)
    3. Fort Munro (#DGKhan)

    5. Shah Shams and Mai Maharban (#Multan)
    6. #Harappa (#Sahiwal)
    7. Shrine of Hazrat Baba Haji Sher Chawli Mashaikh (#Vehari)
