Tourism sector in India geared up to welcome G20 delegates: Indian delegation at London World Travel Mart | India News

NEW DELHI: Tourism sector in India was impacted heavily due to Covid-19 pandemic, but has “bounced back” and shown considerable resilience, additional tourism secretary Rakesh Verma said while representing India at the World Travel Market (WTM) in London.
Under the theme of ‘The Future of Travel Starts Now’, the Indian delegation also promoted India as a “safe tourist destination post-Covid-19”, and the country is ready to welcome G20 delegates as India gears up to assume the G20 Presidency from December 1 this year.
Approximately 2.19 billion doses of vaccines have been administered to people, showing that “India as a tourist destination is safer and more resilient to tackle the threat posed by the current pandemic,” Verma said.
In a series of tweets the tourism ministry said India has achieved phenomenal growth in enhancing infrastructure. “Along with the massive vaccination drive, it will help India to achieve pre-pandemic levels of international tourist arrivals. It also offers huge opportunities for investors and an Investor Summit will be organized by the Ministry in February 2023,” it said.
Led by Union tourism secretary Arvind Singh, the Indian delegation to the WTM 2022 also met discussed investment opportunities in tourism with Andy Burwell of the Confederation of British Industry (CBI).
Singh also held several meetings with key dignitaries, international media groups and other stakeholders including Harold Goodwin, the Responsible Tourism Advisor of WTM.
The Ministry of Tourism also said that is aiming to develop the tourism sector, especially in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic to “new heights and accelerating the transition to achieve sustainable development targets of 2030”.
