Mohamed Karmoune, Ambassador of Morocco here today emphasized the need for formal engagement and cooperation in the arena of Film and Culture. She said such an arrangement between the two states is quite imperative with a view to understand each others’ culture, values and enhance people to people contact. She said that films are not only a unique medium to promote and project core values, culture & heritage of any society, but also generate greater economic activity besides providing entertainment to the public at large. Minister of State said that present democratic government has taken an initiative to re-vitalize the dormant film industry of Pakistan by encouraging artists and providing various fiscal incentives for the revival of industry and cinema in the country. She said that Pakistan is a land of beauty and splendors and projecting it through Screen tourism is sine quo non to promote the peaceful and softer image of Pakistan at global level.
