According to the reports, the G20 meeting is a platform for the world’s largest economies to come together and discuss important issues that affect the global economy.
The member countries of the G20 contribute to more than 80 per cent of the world’s GDP, and their decisions have a significant impact on the world economy.
The people associated with tourism sector here hope lifting of travel advisories by several foreign countries.
The travel advisories were issued by these countries some decades back. Lifting of the advisories will pave way for arrival of foreign tourists in large number to Kashmir.
Their arrival will strengthen the economy. Jammu and Kashmir is already witnessing a tourism boom for last several years. Last year a record number of domestic tourists visited the union territory and this year also a record number of tourists are expected.
Lifting of travel advisories can be a game changer. Kashmir has enormous tourism potential and can attract large number of foreign tourists. Subsequently, the tourism related infrastructure at the tourist places can be further upgraded to meet the changing requirements.
More tourist spots have to be identified and developed. Right now all eyes are on the G20 meeting in Srinagar. Hopefully it is going to lead to results which are fruitful for the tourism sector in Jammu and Kashmir and helps in attracting more foreign investment.
The stakeholders are very much optimistic about the outcome and the event is expected to help tourism and foreign investment in a big way.
