Nevada all set to introduce tourism office

The Nevada state of the United States is all set to introduce a brand new tourism office in New Delhi in order to promote their travel and tourism sector in this country, said an official.

Thomas Hutchinson, the Nevada Lt Governor, said it before starting his India trip for its launch. He said that opening an office in India will provide Nevada with greater opportunities to promote international travel and tourism to their state.

He added that the state has 6.5 percent share of the travel market of India and a new research suggests that the real reasons for travel from India is to pay visit to the family living the United States, an area where they actively market the state.

Whilst many Indians travel over to the UK, their colonial home, where they can regularly be seen chartering a yacht in the Hamble, the US doesn't have the same relationship.

Hutchinson said, “With a new office in New Delhi, I am confident that our increased presence will encourage even more tourists from India to visit the Silver State.” The maximum annual budget for an international tour to an Indian is US$ 5451 and they love staying in mid-priced hotels and look for experience of duty-free shipping.

Meanwhile, earlier today, India and Afghanistan today signed a pact that would allow visa free travel for diplomats. The decision came after Afghan Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah’s meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi had a discussion on bilateral ties and regional issues.

In a tweet, External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Vikas Swarup said: “Sustained engagement with Afghanistan. Chief Executive Abdullah meets the Prime Minister… Promoting stronger diplomatic ties…India and Afghanistan sign agreement on visa free travel for diplomats,”
