Inaugurating a seminar on ‘Responsible Tourism,’ Mr. Surendran said that the government was taking steps to provide employment to around 50,000 persons belonging to local communities in tourism centres. As part of this, 20 ‘Village Life Experience Packages’ would be initiated. These would focus on traditional vocations like coir, handloom and pottery-making as components of these packages. This would help the local communities to benefit from the tourism initiatives.
