“The ratio of the forests to the available land in Pakistan is already one of the lowest in the world. We must, therefore, not only protect this national wealth from wanton destruction but also grow more trees for improving environment and ecological balance and contribute to the national economy,” he said.
He also said that Pakistan could not afford to lose more forests in the wake of growing demands. He urged that all citizens must play their role in making Pakistan a forest rich country.
He expressed the hope that AgriTourism would be a milestone towards a green and clean Pakistan. He planted a tree & appreciated the efforts to come close to the natural living style. He extended his support for the cause. Agri tourism is grateful for his visit and support.
