Prime Minister Imran Khan has made 6 foreign visits in the first four months of his government. He was very critical of foreign visits of former prime ministers of PML-N and PPP. He always questions the rationality of such visits and declared these visits as wastage of money.
But it seems that now he realised the importance of state visits and made six visits so far. Prime Minister Imran Khan has spent Rs40.381 million (Rs40, 381,067) on six visits. This was revealed in national assembly. These visits are made to strengthen ties with host countries and to further develop economic and trade ties.
According to details presented in the National Assembly during the Question-Hour in reply to a question asked by the PML-N MNA Rana Sanaullah Khan, Rs3,099,362 was spent on the prime minister’s visit to Madina/Jeddah from Sept 18, 2018 to September 19, 2018, Rs433,215.00 on his visit to Abdu Dhabi from September 18, 2018 to 18 September 2018, Rs870,132 on his visit to Riyadh from October 22, 2018 to October 23, 2018, Rs24,444,799 on the Beijing/Shanghai visit from November 1, 2018 to November 5, 2018, Rs3,990,492 on Abu Dhabi/Dubai visit from November 18, 2018 to November 2018 and Rs7,543,067 on Malaysia visit from November 20, 2018 to November 21, 2018.
