India Named Top Destination at World Travel Awards

India fought off stiff competition to claim the title of "World's Leading Destination" at yesterday's World Travel Awards (WTA), held in New Delhi.

Other nominees for the prestigious award included Jamaica, Rio de Janeiro, Lisbon and Dubai, but India came out on top for the second year in a row. This was thanks in part perhaps to its tourist board also winning the title of World's Leading Tourist Board for the second year running, India having enjoyed significant growth in international visitor numbers of late. "It has been a tremendous honour for our nation to host the Grand Final of World Travel Awards, the highest accolade in travel and tourism," said K Chiranjeevi, India's tourism minister. "Tourists from the world over can find their destination or product of desire in India. We can proudly say that India is an incredible destination with range of products like nowhere else," he added. The president of the WTA, Graham Cooke, paid tribute to the progress India has made in attracting new visitors. "India in particular is playing a decisive role in generating new opportunities in travel and tourism, hence the decision to host our Grand Final in New Delhi." explained Mr Cooke. "In less than a decade, the number of international tourists here has more than doubled, reflecting how travel and tourism is linked inextricably with the economic evolution of this new superpower," he said. The World Travel Awards have been taking place every year for the past 19 years, and are intended to encourage consistent improvements in customer service and commercial performance in the industry worldwide.
