Profile of Israeli tourists to India is changing: Envoy


The profile of Israeli tourists visiting India is changing and more families from the country are arriving here, Israel’s Mumbai Consul General David Akov said here on Saturday.

“The profile of the tourists visiting India is changing. Both the governments (India and Israel) are trying to make efforts,” Akov told reporters on the sidelines of Israel Film Festival organised in Goa by Entertainment Society of Goa (ESG).

He was responding to a question on the allegation that many Israelis were involved in illegal drug trade and creating their enclaves in Goa.

“The changing profile of Israeli tourists will alter that impression. You have more families coming to India from Israel,” he said, adding that 40,000 Israeli tourists visit the country annually.
