A roadshow in Warsaw by the department drew a large number of visitors and representatives from the tourism sector.


"With its vast geography, diverse culture and a fast growing economy, East Europe is a very important market for tourism," said Kerala Tourism Minister A.P. Anilkumar.

"Poland is today considered Europe's growth champion following its successful economic reforms and building of vital institutions since 1989," he added.

Kerala Tourism director P.I. Sheik Pareeth led the state delegation at the Warsaw roadshow and India's Ambassador to Poland and Lithuania Ajay Bisaria was also present.

Trade partners from the private sector also showcased their products.
