PHDCCI White Paper on Border Tourism launched

Wednesday, December 28, 2022


The PHDCCI White Paper on Border Tourism was released recently by Arvind Singh (IAS), Secretary, Ministry of Tourism, Government of India.

The Secretary, Ministry of Tourism, Government of India said, “As most of the countries of Asia Pacific opened up a little late post Covid as a preventive measure, we are still going slow on global tourists coming into India, affecting our inbound numbers but we have been able to revive strongly due to our rapid vaccination drive and prompt Government action for opening up to the globe attracting foreign tourists.”

He added that the recovery of India’s tourism post Covid can be witnessed through the whooping number of tourists, approximately 20 lakhs, who visited the state of Jammu & Kashmir till October 2022.

Harpreet Singh (IPoS), Joint Secretary, Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DONER), Government of India, said, “Tourism continues to be an important sector for the Indian economy and majority of the infrastructure development projects undertaken by the Government are towards the tourism sector. The 8 states of NER comprising 8% of the area of the country and close to 4% of the population has huge potential for tourism but it still has only 0.3% share of domestic tourists and 0.93% share of the foreign tourists. There holds immense potential which needs to be tapped in the NE region through effective infrastructure development and better connectivity.”

The event was also attended by Rama Kamaraju, Senior Consultant – Aspirational Districts Programme (ADP), NITI Aayog; Deep Goel, Chair– Hospitals, Diagnostics & Wellness Committee, PHDCCI; Rajan Sehgal, Co-Chair – Tourism & Hospitality Committee, PHDCCI; Dushyant Bhalla, Co-Chair – Tourism & Hospitality Committee, PHDCCI; Saurabh Sanyal, CEO & Secretary General, PHDCCI.
