 Shillong: The two-day first ‘Travel and Tourism Bazar’ got under way at All Saints’ Hall here on Thursday.

Altogether 15 stalls have been put up to showcase the tourism of the participating states. A stall of a few rural tourism projects of Mawlynnong and Langkyrdem villages was put up by the Meghalaya government, which is organising the event.

The Bazar witnessed participation of Government Departments from Kumaon of Uttarakhand, Gujarat and Tamil Nadu.

“This Bazar is an outcome of three consecutive Travel & Tourism Bazaars organized in Kolkata from 2008,” Director of Fairs & Travels Sudipto Lahiry told media persons.

“We are also showcasing a very important jungle property from Assam named Brahmaputra Jungle Resort at our travel bazaar,” Lahiry said.

“The fairs can be extremely effective for making face-to-face contact and sale or purchase, identifying suppliers, checking out competitors, and reaching out to the people,” Lahiry said.

“Our fair bazar is participated by local agents, hoteliers and adventure tour experts,” he said.

The Northeastern region endowed with rich natural beauty, serenity and exotic flora and fauna were invaluable resources for the development of eco-tourism, Lahira said.

“These attractions are scattered over the entire region and largely located in remote areas within highly fragile environment”, he said adding that the facilities for stay, food, shopping and entertainment have been improving tremendously and the Government has attached great importance to the development of tourist infrastructure in the Northeastern region.
