Prime Minister Imran Khan is making good on his promises of austerity and protecting taxpayers’ money ever since coming into power in 2018.

The premier’s international visits have garnered plenty of praise owing to the fact that his predecessors had spent lavishly, enjoying the high-profile visits with their families and huge delegations.


PM Imran’s Current US Visit Cost Nine Times Less Than Former PM’s Trip

Khan’s upcoming Davos trip will be the most economical in the last 1o years, the government has claimed. According to the Press Information Department (PID), the next month’s annual World Economic Forum (WEF) summit in Switzerland will cost $68,000, whereas the previous Prime Ministers doled out huge sums of money on their trips.

Here’s a comparison:

In its statement, PID further said that PM Khan has directed the concerned people to further cut down the expenses on his foreign tours.

The 67-year-old leader’s previous trip to Washington cost only $68,000 to the national exchequer as compared to Nawaz Sharif’s $549,854 and Asif Ali Zardari’s $752,682.
