Travel Guide

Pakistan covers 796,095 km2 (307,374 sq mi), approximately equalling the combined land areas of France and the United Kingdom. Its eastern regions are located on the Indian tectonic plate and the western and northern regions on the Iranian plateau and Eurasian landplate. Apart from the 1,046 km (650 mi)

Participants
Arabian Sea coastline, Pakistan’s land borders total 6,774 km (4,209 mi)—2,430 km (1,510 mi) with Afghanistan to the northwest, 523 km (325 mi) with China to the northeast, 2,912 km (1,809 mi) with India to the east and 909 km (565 mi) with Iran to the southwest.
The northern and western highlands of Pakistan contain the towering Karakoram and Pamir mountain ranges, which incorporate some of the world’s highest peaks, including K2 (8,611 m/28,251 ft) and Nanga Parbat (8,126 m/26,660 ft).

Presentation
The Balochistan Plateau lies to the West, and the Thar Desert in the East. An expanse of alluvial plains lies in Punjab and Sindh along the Indus river. The 1,609 km (1,000 mi) Indus River and its tributaries flow through the country from the Kashmir region to the Arabian Sea.


Economy

Pakistan has a semi-industrialized economy. The growth poles of the Pakistani economy are situated along the Indus River. Diversified economies of Karachi and Punjab’s urban centres, coexist with lesser developed areas in other parts of the country. Despite being a very poor country in 1947, Pakistan’s economic

Fashion
growth rate has been better than the global average during the subsequent four decades, but imprudent policies led to a slowdown in the late 1990s. Recently, wide-ranging economic reforms have resulted in a stronger economic outlook and accelerated growth especially in the manufacturing and financial services sectors. Since the 1990s, there has been great improvement in the foreign exchange position and rapid growth in hard currency reserves.
The 2005 estimate of foreign debt was close to US$40 billion. However, this has decreased in recent years with assistance from the International Monetary Fund and significant debt-relief from the United States. Pakistan’s gross domestic

Fashion
product, as measured by purchasing power parity, is estimated to be $475.4 billion while its per capita income stands at $2,942. The poverty rate in Pakistan is estimated to be between 23% and 28%.


Demographics

The estimated population of Pakistan in 2010 was over 170 million making it the world’s sixth most-populous country, behind Brazil and ahead of Russia. The population growth rate now stands at 1.6% . The majority of southern Pakistan’s population live along the Indus River. By population size, Karachi is the largest

Flage Pakistan
city of Pakistan. In the northern half, most of the population live in an arc formed by the cities of Lahore, Faisalabad, Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Gujranwala, Sialkot, Gujrat, Jhelum, Sargodha and Sheikhupura. About 20% of the population live below the international poverty line of US$1.25 a day .
Life expectancy at birth is 63 years for females and 62 years for males as of compared to the healthy life expectancy at birth which was 54 years for males and 52 years for females in 2003. Expenditure on health was at 2% of the GDP. The mortality below 5 was at 97 per 1,000 live births. During 1990–2003, Pakistan sustained its historical lead as the most urbanised nation in South Asia, with city dwellers making up 36% of its population. Furthermore, 50% of Pakistanis now reside in towns of 5,000 people or more.

Society and Culture

The national dress of Shalwar Kameez is originally a Sindhi dress, however,

Fashion
mostly it is worn in all parts of Pakistan. The sari is another national dress that is worn by many women in Sindh and parts of Pakistan. Women wear brightly coloured shalwar qameez, while men often wear solid-coloured ones.

Handicrafts Division

Pakistani Handicrafat
The Handicraft Section is part of the Facilitation Division of the TDAP. The Section has been working to create a strong synergy between the artisan community and the TDAP. Many well-attended handicraft fairs were held in 2009 in eight of Pakistan’s bustling cities including Mirpurkhas, Sukkur, Hyderabad, Multan, Gujrat, Abbottabad, Gilgit and Muzaffarabad. Docu-films about the lives and work of handicraft workers were

Wood Work
especially made to enable TDAP to recognize each craftsperson as a promotional motif to introduce Pakistan’s handicrafts and to also help the TDAP internally select the relevant craftspeople for an international delegation.
A handicraft web-link is therefore being developed so that orders from the international market can be received. The categories those are available include:

Hand Woven
Textiles( hand-woven, block-print, Tie n Die, Chundri), Jewellery, Bangles / Glass work, Metalwork, Carpets, rugs and Durries, Pottery, ceramics and clay toys, Basketry, Paper mache products, Woodwork and furniture, Candles, Leather garments and accessories, and Cutlery.
During Expo Pakistan 2010, a special handicraft hall was set up that garnered a wonderful response from foreign visitors from different parts of the world. A handicraft show was also organized that displayed garments and accessories. TDAP is further exploring the

Bangles - Glass Work
participation of local Pakistani craftsmen in specific handicraft exhibitions and encouraging their participation in fairs in Russia, Central Asia, Middle-East, Europe as well as other countries such as the USA, Canada, the UK and Australia.
USA imports a wide range of ‘Made in Pakistan’ wall hangings and cushion covers and many other items “duty free”. A Handicraft Directory is being produced by TDAP, which is expected to come out before the end of the calendar year 2010. This would include a list of artisans

Metal Work
from the length and breadth of the country, along with their contacts and specialties. This Directory shall be distributed to all of the Pakistan’s Missions abroad. Special Training Workshops are being planned for Handicraft exporters, which are expected to commence in October, 2010
