In India, total contribution of travel & tourism to employment will be 50 million and that is a very positive impact on the economy of the country. According to the WTTC, by 2027, international tourist arrivals to India are forecast to reach 17,284,000, generating a tourist expenditure of INR 2,901.7 billion.

Its GDP contribution to the world’s economy will rise to 10.5% and by 2025 it will account for 10.7% of the world’s employment. South Asia will be the fastest growing region as India out paces China.

IATA predicts that China would overtake the US as the world’s largest passenger market by 2030.
