He made the statement during an interactive session and press conference of Indian Association of Tour Operators (IATO) in New Delhi on July 8.



Sharma appreciated the role played by private stakeholders like IATO in promoting tourism in the country. “The participation of the private sector should be explored to the maximum possible extent to promote tourism and to meet tourism related targets,” he said.



He added that the world has become a global village and tourism is a powerful tool to connect our country to the rest of the world.
