Welcome to WTTC, India Initiative
The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) is a global business leaders’ forum, the Members are Chief Executives of the world’s foremost Travel & Tourism private sector organizations with a common vision to promote the proven potential of the industry to create wealth, jobs and prosperity across all sectors of society and the global economy.
The World Travel & Tourism Council, India Initiative (WTTCII) was launched in February 2000 to raise awareness of the crucial role that travel and tourism plays in the development and growth of the economy in India.
WTTCII invited key players of the industry to speak with a single voice to take Tourism forward. Under the patronage of Mr PRS Oberoi, Mr Krishna Kumar, Mr Lalit Suri, and with the active support of industry leaders, WTTCII in February 2000 identified priorities in a Manifesto.
In furtherance of this objective WTTCII authored a Status Paper - India, The Tourism Imperative in August 2001. This Paper was designed to analyze the status of tourism in India along with other indicators like India’s global share of tourism, competitors and also identified the roadblocks inhibiting growth.
Mission
The potential of the travel and tourism sector can be fully realized only if a supportive regulatory framework is in place. No single aspect of travel and tourism can succeed without increasing co-operation between the Government and the private sector.
Such co-operative endeavors, within a supportive regulatory framework, are vital to the development of a sustainable travel and tourism industry. WTTCII aims to advance this endeavor and to work together with private and public organizations to achieve these objectives.
The Vision
Our vision of Travel and Tourism is that of partnership between all stakeholders delivering consistent results that match the needs of our economy, our governments – both state and central and local communities with those of business based on:
  • Recognizing Travel and Tourism as a top priority;
  • Balancing economic goals with people, culture and the environment;
  • A shared pursuit of long-term growth and prosperity;
