India’s minister of tourism has recently unveiled plans to expand and develop island tourism, specifically in areas of mangroves and backwaters. Together with this, the minister has stated that India will begin to encourage tourism in the form of cruise liners.
The country is working to identify the islands in which tourism is most likely to thrive, referring to these places as ones for ‘holistic development’. With more than 1200 islands, there is sure to be a huge surge in tourism in India in the near future. This will be incredibly beneficial to the country’s economy, bringing in money as well as job opportunities for locals.
