He said the Pakistani music was highly popular in various regions, including the Sub-continent. “Our country has produced one of the legendry musicians, Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, who not only dominated the scene of music in the Sub-continent but made his mark at the global level too,” he added.

The minister told the delegation that Lok Virsa, an attached department of the Ministry of Information, was also working to preserve the dying musical instruments with a view to protect the historical music.

Fawad said the current government had introduced a new revolutionary visa regime to encourage tourism, sports and investment in the country.

“We are open to investment in the fields of film and music as these are vital mediums to promote values and culture of any society,” he said.

He also invited the Chinese film-makers to come to Pakistan and shoot the scenic beauty of its northern areas.

Pakistan, he said, was once third largest film producing countries in the world but the trend of production had unfortunately declined with the passage of time. “We have now 127 cinema screens at the moment and we aim to raise their number to 1,000.”
