World Travel Market 2015 interview – G. Kamala Verdhana Rao, Kerala (India) At the World Travel Market 2015 in London, the leading event for the global travel industry, euronews spoke to G. Kamala Verdhana Rao, Secretary to Government at the Kerala Department of Tourism about the prominence the southern Indian state has with international visitors.
Out of 8 million people that visited India last year, one million came to Kerala. That speaks about the beauty and about the strength of our products. It may be backwaters, it might be Ayurveda, it may be the greenery. And I would definitely say that it is the cleanest, the greenest and the safest part. As far as greenery is concerned I do not think any state can beat Kerala. So yes we have received a big number of foreign tourists and Kerala is very prominent.
