Under the auspices of India’s G20 Presidency, the country’s first Global Tourism Summit will be held in New Delhi from 10-12 April 2023 by the Ministry of Tourism, Government of India.

On the sidelines of a roadshow held at the St Regis Hotel in Mumbai, Prashant Ranjan, Director, Ministry of Tourism, Government of India, stated that India will showcase opportunities for investment and trade in various tourism segments such as theme parks, adventure tourism, and wellness tourism at the Global Tourism Investor’s Summit.

He also stated that the Indian government has been investing in infrastructure and promoting the tourism and hospitality sectors through various schemes and initiatives. The Swadesh Darshan 2.0 scheme will focus on the sustainable and responsible development of tourist destinations.

In order to facilitate investment opportunities in Maharashtra, the government is discussing the creation of an online application portal, Saurabh Vijay, Principal Secretary, Tourism & Cultural Affairs, Government of Maharashtra, stated. He thanked the CII for organizing the roadshow in Mumbai.

Vijay also stated that Maharashtra would be delighted to participate in the First Global Tourism Investors’ Summit in 2023.

Sunit Kothari, Co-Convener, CII Maharashtra Sub-group on Tourism and Aviation & Director, Kothari Group while welcoming the delegates said, “The Indian travel and tourism industry is a rapidly growing and attractive investment destination, due to the growing middle class, efforts by the government to boost the industry, the diverse range of tourist experiences offered, the increasing digitalization of the industry, and the significant untapped potential for growth.”

“Maharashtra is a popular tourist destination in western India known for its diverse range of attractions such as beaches, hill stations, wildlife sanctuaries, ancient temples, and monuments. The state has the potential to become an ideal tourism destination by capitalizing on its many assets while addressing its current shortcomings,” he added.

The roadshow drew the interest of small and medium-sized businesses in the potential and promise of the upcoming summit.

The Indian government has a vision of USD 56 billion in forex, creating around 140 million jobs in tourism by 2030 through inclusive growth, with a particular emphasis on cruise tourism, ecotourism, and adventure tourism. Union Tourism Ministry’s main aim in 2023 will be to establish the country as a key tourism destination during its year-long G20 presidency.
