The Indian tourism outlook is certainly very promising with an upswing in the growth of Foreign Tourist Arrivals (FTAs) in India in recent years. In 2016, India received 8.80 million FTAs with a growth rate of 9.7%. The target is to continue recording 10% growth rate in international tourist arrivals over the next three years through a multi-pronged approach, including proactive marketing strategies in partnership with the tourism stakeholders.
