Uttarakhand Tourism Professionals Association (UTPA) team led by Ravi Gosain, President, Sunil Bahuguna, General Secretary, Anil Gusain, Treasurer and Yatendra Negi, member, recently met Shri Trivendra Singh Rawat, Chief Minister, Uttarakhand to brief him on UTPA activities, as how the natives of Uttarakhand working in Tourism and Hospitality sector across the country and abroad are keen to promote Uttarakhand as all time tourist destination.
It can be one of the most important sectors to generate employment and help state government to stop or reverse migration, which is one of the major problems in Uttarakhand. The association’s membership is growing and expected to reach 500 members figure by the end of year 2019. Ravi shares, “The association informed honorable Chief Minister to organise UTPA seminar cum convention in Dehradun to showcase the tourism products and discuss the issues related to development of Tourism in Uttarakhand. This convention will be a milestone for tourism promotion and development in the state for coming years. We are quite thankful for CM’s time and interest shown in our activities. He applauded our efforts and fully assured his support.”
