The Australia India Travel and Tourism Council (AITTC) was launched in Sydney this week, with great support from both countries and with the agreed aim of enhancing tourism both ways between the two destinations.

Now that the organisation is active, AITTC chairman Sandip Hor said that the focus is to “formulate a strategic plan for the council to outline our future direction, and specifically identify initiatives to implement, to add value to both the industry and our members.

The initiative was welcomed by tourism minister Martin Ferguson, who said in a statement that “as India is one of the world’s fastest growing tourism markets, and the Australian government is committed to growing visitor numbers from India, organisations such as the AITTC … will play an important role in increasing the number of visitors.”

AITTC membership is comprised of a range of travel industry stakeholders, such as travel agents, airlines, tour operators, hotels, media professionals and tourism bodies.
