Pitching Karnataka as an “attractive” tourist destination, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah today said tourist arrivals in the state have grown by more than 300 per cent in the last 10 years to 85 million.

“Karnataka has seen tremendous growth in tourist arrivals, which have grown by more than 300 per cent from a mere 24 million 10 years ago to 85 million today,” Siddaramaiah said, reports Business Standard.

He was speaking after inaugurating the 38th Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Travel Mart here that was organised by Karnataka government’s tourism department in association with the Union Tourism Ministry.

Apart from being an attractive tourist destination, Karnataka offers a variety of investment opportunities throughout the value chain and across tourism industry verticals spanning both the manufacturing and services sectors, Siddaramaiah said.

“Our aim is to place Karnataka one among the top tourist destinations in the country and also among the top tourist destinations in the world,” he said.
