Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) on Friday hailed the Government decision to give charge of tourism secretary to Navin Kumar Choudhary, who it believes will help promote the sector given his vast experience.
“In view of his positive and helpful style of working, the transfer has been widely welcomed by the Travel and Tourism sector. With the stakeholders having high expectations, the Government also needs to create an environment conducive for officers to deliver their best for the revival of this important sector of our economy,” read a statement issued by the KCCI.
KCCI urged the government that in view of the large number of people associated with the tourism sector, major policy changes are required for the revival of this sector.
“The Government would need to provide stability by assigning responsibilities for longer durations to efficient and competent officers and also to provide budgetary support at par with other tourist destination states,” it said.
