“Tourism is the best way to connect to the world and our efforts are in the right directions. India has diversity in its culture and I appeal to the delegates, they must visit our state stalls in the Mart.

The Mart has been organised on lines of major international travel marts held annually in countries across the world, with the objective of positioning the tourist destinations and products of the country in international markets. 

Present at the Mart are delegates from 51 countries including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, UK and USA.
