tourism in Guwahati endsThe two-day NEC-sponsored national conference on ‘Livelihoods Through Rural Tourism in North East India: The Way Forward’ organised by the North Eastern Regional Centre (NERC) of the National Institute of Rural Development and Panchayati Raj (NIRDPR), Guwahati, came to an end yesterday.


The conference was attended by the former Secretary, Ministry of Tourism and a permanent member of UNWTO, MP Bezbarua; member of NEC CK Das; former Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture Bhaskar Baruah; former Commissioner and Secretary, Department of Tourism Swapnanil Barua; Secretary of NEC Ram Muivah and Director General of NIRDPR, Hyderabad, Dr WR Reddy, among other noted dignitaries.

The two-day conference aimed at promoting rural tourism, with special focus on home-stay as a sustainable livelihood measure among the rural population of the area.

Appreciating the NIRDPR’s plan to launch a certificate course at the NERC on rural tourism, the panellists recommended putting more importance on learning by doing rather than acquiring theoretical knowledge for managing different types of tourists.
