India eyes doubling of foreign tourists to 20m by 2020
India is doing very well internationally - it is 13th in the world and 7th in the Asia-Pacific in terms of FTAs
India, which saw a record 10 million Foreign Tourist Arrivals (FTAs) in 2017, is aiming to double this number in the next three years, Minister of State for Tourism KJ Alphons said today.
“We crossed 10 million FTAs in 2017, and if we include non-resident Indians visiting the country then the number went up to over 17 million. In dollar terms, our earnings have gone up by 20.2 per cent, which is a very good growth compared to the world tourism that grew by less than five per cent,the minister said on the sidelines of OTM 2018.
