The international tourism carnival to be held from April 8 to 10 next year would showcase the state’s rich and diverse culture and tourism products and enhance Assam’s image in the global tourism arena, an official release said.

The Chief Minister emphasised that the carnival must be organised in a planned way as this was the first time the immense tourism potential of the state would be showcased on such a grand scale.

The meeting, was attended, among others, by Minister of Tourism Chandan Brahma, who is also the vice-chairman of the steering committee. (PTI)
