India has very old and wide range of cultural heritage, but the people here need to open up to tourism. Alphonse Kannanthanam Union Minister and head of state Tourism department spoke at the open discussion with N.S. Sajith.
He approached the discussion with humorous yet serious approach and discussed on the topic Crafting Regional Growth Interventions in Heritage and Culture. He highlighted the need to bring an open and liberal atmosphere among the people for conducting evening sessions of entertainment and cultural programmes and also criticized the misinterpretations of such events.
“The tourism department in India has witnessed growth in visitors by 15 % in the year 2017 and rather than visiting places visit to India is an experience and needs to become part of your heart . Thios can be developed civil stations in one year.
