India A trip to Rishikesh and Haridwar makes one understand the significance of better roads and infrastructure for Indian tourism. However, the importance of protecting the environment and heritage must not be forgotten in any way in the road to develop tourism.
As an industry, tourism is important for any country and its economy. For a country as vast as India, tourism brings massive opportunity. In his 2019 Independence Day Speech, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also stressed the need to tap on the untapped potential of tourism in India.
The number of Indians travelling to foreign destinations for holidays is increasing steadily. More and more Indians are now flocking to locations like Australia, New Zealand as well as Thailand and Malaysia.
Prime Minister Modi has urged travelers to look for domestic destinations that are equally mesmerizing.
However, building world class infrastructure throughout the country is essential to instill confidence among people, but is equally challenging at the same time.
Tourist destinations will thrive if there are world-class roads, air connectivity and top-notch security with tourist-friendly attitudes.
It cannot be denied that infrastructure development will be the key to attract tourists.
