Our government is trying to reshape and promote the tourism industry for the socio-economic development of the country. In order to achieve that quest, the government under the astute leadership of our prime minister has stepped up with the idea of exclusive tourism zones, keeping the country’s existing social reality far away, so that the global conglomerates can come forward with their competitive projects.
To attract more foreign tourists, the government is also working to ease the visa complexities. Moreover, the development of separate software is also underway from which foreign tourists’ arrival data can be easily obtained.
Experts opine that our country is full of tourism opportunities. Tourism not only increases economic activities; it also contributes to country’s GDP growth. Our country’s people are not yet aware of our captivating local tourism attractions. We must emphasise the importance of branding at home and abroad our tourist attractions.

Industry insiders say the government is working to make the country an aviation hub. Once the ongoing several development projects are completed, the overall scenario of the country will change phenomenally.
If implemented, these projects will significantly improve the socio-economic condition of the people in tourism site areas. The projects in those areas will create new employment opportunities and will completely change the fate of the local people.
Agricultural products that they produce there will get a new market from the visiting tourists. They will also be able to earn adequate money through fruit shops, restaurant businesses, and various handicrafts they make there. All in all, such development projects will make the indigenous and local people financially solvent.
These projects would not only make a significant contribution to the development of the tourism industry but also to the national economy. However, the development of these areas must be environment-friendly and participatory through discussions with the local residents.
