The meeting between Haris Theocharis and Prahlad Singh Patel was arranged during the visit of the Greek minister to India for the Outbound Travel Market international fair.
Theocharis disclosed that the drafting of a new strategic plan for pulling tourists from India is under way: “We believe that luxury tourism, conference tourism and wedding tourism are the main domains where Greece has a lot to offer to Indian visitors, who are quality tourists, so we are focusing our actions on these forms of tourism,” he said.
In the world, India is one of the biggest emerging tourism markets. In last year, the number of Indian tourists going abroad increased 30 percent from 2018, and Patel expressed his optimism that “the rise will be even greater in the coming period.”
Yesterday Theocharis had a meeting with the representatives of the Indian Chamber of Commerce and decided to work toward meeting the demand for more flights between the two countries. They also discussed the issue of Golden Visa residence permits.
