The chief minister said that peace has been restored in Balochistan thus investment opportunities are opened for private companies but mainstream media support is required for highlighting lucrative tourism sectors.

“The development process in Balochistan is in full swing and needs to be highlighted in national media but unfortunately our share in mainstream media coverage is very low,” CM Kamal told the PEMRA Chairman, stressing upon more time for provincial issues on national media. “The resources of Balochistan have been opened up to the world and better results can be yielded by promoting them through the media.”
