Shillong Sept 28: Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K. Sangma launched a new website of Meghalaya Tourism – ‘Check into Nature’ in the presence of Commissioner and Secretary Tourism Vijay Kumar, Director Tourism Cyril Diengdoh and other stakeholders from the tourism and hospitality sector via video conference.

The Chief Minister lauded the efforts of the department for the comprehensive website that will greatly benefit tourists visiting Meghalaya.

 

Addressing the different stakeholders from the tourism sector, the Chief Minister said that the past couple of months have been difficult for the tourism sector in view of restrictions and closures due to the pandemic.

 

“Adaptive measures need to be considered and implemented in order to attract and promote Meghalaya as a safe travel destination post Covid,” he stressed

“The challenges we face are multiple and we need to look at safety measures in order to build the confidence of visiting tourists. Overall, we need to adapt to this entire situation to take maximum advantage to attract visitors because I feel there will be a decline in people travelling to outside locations, and we will see a lot of domestic tourists coming into our state,” the Chief Minister said.

 

The Chief Minister also said that the government has committed significant investments for the development of tourism and related infrastructure which will greatly enhance the capacities of the locations to present unique experiences to tourists visiting the State.

The Chief Minister also launched the Restart Tourism pamphlet during the function, an initiative to promote safe and sustainable tourism practices by putting in place conscious principles to be adopted by all tourism stakeholders in the State.
