    Even as news reports of bomb blasts, street violence, flailing airlines and crumbling tourist spots keep trickling onto front pages, the World Economic Forum’s Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index (TTC1) 2013 report released on Thursday revealed that Pakistan had improved by three ranking points, up from 125 in 2011 to 122 in 2013.
    Pakistan landed between Cameroon (121) and Bangladesh (123) in the overall world ranking, while neighbouring India ranked 65 on the competitiveness table.
    In the regional Asia Pacific rankings, Pakistan came in at 24, in between Tajikistan (23) and Bangladesh (25).
    The ranking are divided into three sub indexes, where Pakistan ranked 131 on the travel and tourism regulatory framework, 104 on the business environment and infrastructure, and 116 on travel and tourism human, cultural and natural resources.
    The index was compiled by taking 14 statistically significant indicators into account including, policy rules and regulations, environmental sustainability, safety and security, health and hygiene, prioritisation of travel and tourism, airport transport infrastructure, ground transport and infrastructure, tourism infrastructure, ICT infrastructure, price competitiveness in the travel and tourism industry, human resources, affinity for travel and tourism, natural resources and cultural resources.
    Improvement
    According to the report, Pakistan showed improvements in the areas of human resources, where the indices on education and training have improved to the rank of 125 in 2013 as compared to 134 in 2011.
    Similarly, availability of qualified labor showed an improvement, rising to 79 in 2013 as compared to 100 in 2011 — an indication of a return of skilled labour force from the middle east and other countries.
    Decline
    Among the areas where Pakistan showed poor performance are policy rules and regulations, dropping from a ranking of 106 in 2011 to 120 this year. Pakistan also fell in prioritising of travel and tourism, which secured a rank of 131 in 2013 as compared to 121 in 2011.
    Out of all the economies on the TTCI, the list was topped by Switzerland, while Haiti finished last.

    Well, Pak is the second biggest destination for terror tourism, after Afganistan. Wannabe Jihadists from around the world flow into Pak to visit the sacred shrines of the Taliban, the LET, the Pak army, The Pak ISI, in hope of salvation or better still, being accepted as a disciple in the holy shrines, with a ticket straight to 72 virgins.

    But on a positive note, there are 18 countries that rank lower than Pak. Okay, leaving Somalia, Syria, Afganistan there are 15 actual countries below Pak. How did this happen?

    If you start counting drones as guided tours and NATO soldiers going through Pakistan as foreign visitors, then why not... SURE! :thumb:

    Re: Pakistan ranks 122 out of 140 countries in Travel, Tourism Competi

    Step 1: US drones attack Pakistan repeatedly but PA claim that those attacks are carried out by itself

    Step 2: When this stand becomes increasing unbelievable (as unbelievable as the fact that Pakistan won all wars except 1971 against India), Pakistan agrees that it is America indeed that is making those attacks. It keeps filing protests officially to the Americans and the Pakistani assembly passes resolutions against them as well. Americans continue to use Pakistani bases to mount drone attacks.

    Step 3: Pakistani army mounts drone attacks but blames it on Americans :notsure:

    So the drone attacks may continue, but with different names!

    As for tourists visiting Pakistan, and make it among the top 10 destinations, what does Pakistan have that, say a Afghanistan or a Uzbekistan, does not have?

    Pakistan has some lovely areas which are scenic and of tourists' value.

    However, they are either under the control of the Taliban and terrorists or under the control of the Chinese in the Northern Area.
