Call for southern States to jointly promote tourism

Our Bureau

Bangalore , Aug. 18

KARNATAKA has asked its Southern neighbours to come together to develop tourist circuits jointly and promote them as brands.

Addressing a business session of a tourism trade fair in Kozhikode in Kerala, Karnataka's Minister for State for Tourism, Mr D.B. Inamdar, said both Kerala and Karnataka are already developing tourism circuits jointly. "There is a huge opportunity if the South Indian States come together and promote the region as a single, unified destination," Mr Inamdar said.

He said the Governments could jointly promote tourism circuits centred around each of the core products. Mr Inamdar said the global tourism markets do not distinguish between States but differentiate in terms of the products that the States offer. "The diversity of experiences that South India offers is unmatched by few others," Mr Inamdar said.

He said Karnataka sees heritage as its core product centred around the world heritage sites of Hampi and Pattadkal.

He said adventure tourism in Karnataka is gaining worldwide recognition.
