Manipur Tourism Policy 2014 recognizes the increasing importance of tourism

Published on : Saturday, July 10, 2021

The word ‘tourism’ comes from Hebrew word ‘torch’ which means ‘search to learn’. At a global level, the year 1967 was declared as the International Year of Tourism with 27 September being observed as the World Tourism Day. The ‘smokeless industry’ is marked by ‘painless transfer of income and highly decentralized.’ Liberalization and globalization promote the impetus and spirit of tourism.


The Manipur Tourism Policy 2014, one of the most comprehensive documents, recognizes the increasing importance of tourism, for the first time, in the economic planning and development of the State, although in 1987 tourism was given ‘industry status’. The mission of the policy is to promote sustainable tourism for economic growth, social integration and for promoting the image of Manipur.


“The Asian Development Bank has identified the region as “Key Area” due to its unrealized potential as eco-tourism product.”


Tourism contributes 6.8 percent of State Domestic Product while the annual revenue collection in Manipur till 2003-4 was Rs. 0.93 lakh only, which is much less than 1 percent. The dreary performance of the smokeless industry in Manipur has a long way to go while the whole world has witnessed a lot of changes in all works of life.
