Reunion looks to forge ties with TN

French Reunion Island is trying to forge relationships with the state in the fields of industry, trade and tourism. The Indian Ocean island is planning to market itself as a potential tourism destination for Indians. 

The 2,500sqkm volcanic island has a large Tamil diaspora, members of which visit the state to trace their genealogy, make pilgrimages and visit family. About 30% of the island’s population is of Indian origin.
