per Sub­hash Goyal, Pres­i­dent, IATO, “In line with tar­get set to dou­ble the in­bound ar­rivals, the In­dian As­so­ci­a­tion of Tour Op­er­a­tors (IATO) has built a strong case to strengthen our overseas of­fices.

Fur­ther, IATO strongly sup­ports the ex­pan­sion of the overseas in­fra­struc­ture with ap­point­ment of rep­re­sen­ta­tive of­fices in strate­gic mar­kets, but not at the cost of any cut in terms of overseas pres­ence.

“The out­sourc­ing of In­dia Tourism of­fices abroad may be good eco­nomic mea­sures and sup­ple­ment­ing it with a lan­guage call cen­tre in In­dia but this ap­pears to be a long­time strat­egy and may take 2-3 years min­i­mum to con­cre­tise the whole pro­posal. So it will be a right de­ci­sion to con­tinue with ex­ist­ing of­fices atleast till we open new ones. As com­mis­sion­ing such of­fices may take its own time and th­ese In­dian overseas rep­re­sen­ta­tion of­fices will take time as to ren­der suc­cess­ful op­er­a­tions and make an im­pact,” said Goyal.
