Travel Agents Federation of India (TAFI) will hold its annual conference in Jerusalem, with about 600 Indian travel agents and tour operators participating. This will be the first time that TAFI will do so signifying the growing ties between India and Israel.
The initiative, extended by invitation through Israel’s Tourism Ministry, is expected to lead to an increase in tourism to Israel from India.
Tourism Minister Dr. Uzi Landau said of the event: “Outgoing tourism from India, one of the world’s fastest growing countries, continues to increase. The Tourism Ministry identified the potential and has focused its efforts there in order to expose Israel to the country’s leading tourism professionals. We see great potential in this conference to position Israel as an attractive tourism destination for the Indian tourist – similar to the way in which Israelis see India as an important tourism destination.”
