Italian Government Supporting Poverty Alleviation Projects in Pakistan

Domenico Bruzzone, the Director of Italian Agency for Development Cooperation in Pakistan has assured that the Government of Italy has taken up the agenda of the expansion of cooperation with Pakistan because they are interested in the alleviation of poverty in the region.

Italian government thinks that Pakistani economy needs a boost because it is still budding and this can be provided by them to alleviate poverty from the state. This announcement was made at the Chitral Press Club. It was announced that the Italian government has approved soft loans for technical education, renewable energy, agriculture, economic transformation, water reservoirs, rural development, eco-tourism and culture in the northern areas, which majorly includes Chitral. This soft loan is worth 238 million Euros and it has been approved for the development of technical education and renewable energy in Pakistan.

In addition, the other soft loan of 20 million Euros has been approved for growing olive in the north because its soil is best suited for the plant having great potential of expansion. Also a sum of 40 million Euros has been sanctioned for the rural development, preservation of cultural heritage and interventions for poverty alleviation of the people specifically living in border areas and vulnerable communities.

It should also not be forgotten that southern part of Chitral is known to attract tourists from all over the world. With more developmental projects in this region, tourism industry in Chitral can be established to be very lucrative.
