“We witnessed historically high numbers in most leisure destinations and this augured well for the sector. These difficult times have also shown us the huge potential that domestic tourism has and that was hitherto grossly under-promoted. Having said that, let us also be aware of the inevitability of domestic tourism numbers tapering as soon as International travel opens up and popular destinations worldwide start accepting visitors. It is important at the same time that we try and prevent a large-scale shift in this direction. Therefore on this National Tourism Day, let us resolve that all stakeholders including the Government will work towards creating an environment and infrastructure that ensures sustained public interest and growth in domestic tourism,” he continued.
