TAAK demands cross-LoC tourism
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Nov 16: Travel Agents’ Association of Kashmir (TAAK) has welcomed the extension of cross-LoC trade from two days to four days a week.
President TAAK Rouf Tramboo said it is a welcome initiative that the two countries have taken.
He said: “The decision by the two countries to deepen their trade relations will hopefully pave the way to promote other sectors like travel and tourism between them.”
He said the two countries should allow travel and tourism across the LoC. “Already there is a list of items that are traded across the LoC. We appeal the two countries to include travel and tourism in this list,” he said.
Tramboo said the non-inclusion of travel and tourism in the LoC trade list has disappointed the tour operators and travel agents of Jammu & Kashmir.
The president TAAK said the India and Pakistan governments need to devise a mechanism so as to initiate cross LoC tourism for the people of Kashmirs as also for those tourists intending to visit both parts of J&K across the LoC from India and Pakistan.
He said: The unhindered travel trade between the two sides will not only boost the people to people contact but also encourage the two sides to overcome the impediments in other areas of the relationship.”
