JS body for developing Kuakata tourist spot

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Public Undertakings recommended on Monday stopping haphazard building constructions at Kuakata tourist spot and asked authorities concerned to develop the spot with modern facilities.

“Kuakata must have to be developed with modern facilities after demarcating it’s area as per the master plan and haphazard building constructions must have to be stopped at the tourism spot,” according to the recommendation of the committee.
   
The recommendations were placed at 12th meeting of the committee with committee Chairman ASM Firoz MP in the chair.

The committee also asked for utilizing  Bangladesh missions  abroad as the foreign diplomats can take effective measures to enhance investment from home and abroad in tourism industries of the country.

For drawing foreign tourists, the visa and immigration process will have to be simplified along with ensuring security of the tourists.

Development of suitable entertainment facilities including ‘dedicated casinos’ must have to be placed for foreign tourists in building constructions in all tourist spots in the country, said the JS committee.

Committee members Mostafizur Rahman MP, M Mahbub Ul Alam Hanif MP, Mirza Azam MP, Muhibur Rahman Manik MP, Nahid Ijahar Khan, Civil Aviation and Tourism Secretary, Bangladesh Tourism Corporation Chairman and other concerned officials, among others, attended the meeting.
