Raymund Glen A Agustin, officer-in-charge, office of product and market development, the tourism department of Philippines headed the delegation gave a general idea of the tourism industry and its booming scenario to the tourism stakeholders in Rajasthan.

Different hoteliers, resorts, spas, representatives of travel industry, tour operators and airlines from the Philippines networking with over 85 local travel partners and tourism product buyers in B2B sessions were present at the event.

“India is an important source market for the Philippines. There has been a 20% growth in Indian arrivals from January to August in 2017 compared to the same period last year.


Jaipur is a key market and, hence, we are looking forward to strengthening our relations with local travel partners from the city. Overall, we expect to welcome 1,00,000 Indian tourists by 2017. This is my first trip to Rajasthan, but it’s not going to be the last,” Glen said.

“Over the last few years, the department has been actively promoting the Philippines not only as a holiday destination but also for luxury travel, MICE events, weddings and small groups. Destinations such as Manila, Boracay, Cebu, Bohol, Palawan and Davao have been aggressively promoted in recent years. With the AJACSSUK visa relaxation at all international airports, the Philippines is sure to attract more Indians in 2017,” he said.
