In order to promote golf tourism in the country, the Ministry of Tourism on Monday announced the launch of the first-ever Incredible India Golf Tourism Summit in New Delhi from October 8 to October 10, 2014, in association with India Golf Tourism Association and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI).The summit aims to invite buyers and sellers of golf tourism overseas and get them interested in India opportunities.
“Countries like Japan and Hong Kong have shortage of golf courses and golfers of these nations can come to India and play at a comparatively low cost. We need to be tapping into this sector. The Ministry is not here to fund golf tournaments, but to help attract people from abroad, which is a net addition to the Indian economy,” Parvez Dewan, Secretary Tourism, Government of India, said.
