Fiji and India have a unique tourism foundation and it is very important for both the countries to capitalise on this foundation, says Attorney General and Minster for Tourism, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.



Speaking at the Enhancing India Bound Tourism seminar at the Indian High Commission in Suva today, Sayed-Khaiyum reiterated on the importance of promoting both, India and Fiji at a mutual level to strengthen its ties.



The Indian High Commission with the Indian Tourism centre of Sydney, Australia organised the seminar to discuss the potential areas and opportunities which the two nations can embark on to further grow their ties in the tourism sector.



The Director of the Government of India’s tourism office in Sydney, Mrs Madhu Dubey presented a power-point presentation to show and discuss all aspects of India’s tourism like holidays, education, culture, business and medical tourism.



“India is a vibrant modern nation with traditional attraction and should not be regarded as a land of ‘sadhus’ (saints) and snake charmers,” said Dubey.



The Indian High Commissioner to Fiji, His Excellency, Mr Vinod Kumar said, “More people from Fiji are travelling to India for medical treatment and this has recently made us issuance of visas on emergency passports.”



Stakeholders in the field of tourism such as travel agents, tour operators, airlines, medical institutions and insurance companies were also present at the seminar.
