Tourism is one of the priority areas which was discussed during the visit of Hon’ble Vice President of India to Serbia in September 2018 and both sides agreed to enhance cooperation.
Today India is the favoured destination for year-round tourism; for heritage, cultural, spiritual, wildlife, eco-tourism, medical, business, sports tourism, etc. India offers an incredible diversity of tourism – cultural rich cities, spiritual places, tropical beaches, heartbreaking Himalayan mountain ranges or wildlife safari. Over the years, India has grown to become a topnotch destination for medical travel backed by the quality of therapy, range of procedural and treatment options, infrastructure and skilled manpower,
zero waiting time etc. The fair provides a suitable platform and opportunity to showcase Indian potential in the tourism sector and to project India as a major tourist destination.
