Minister Angelkova held a work meeting with her Indian counterpart in Argentina

17 April 2018

Minister Angelkova held a work meeting with Alphons Kanaanthanam, India’s Minister of Electronics, IT, Culture, and Tourism, during the summit meeting of the G20 line ministers, which is held in Buenos Aires.

The two discussed the tourism cooperation opportunities between the two countries and shared the idea that development of digital technologies and modern-era marketing are hugely important for tourism.

India is among the top 50 tourism markets for Bulgaria, with nearly 22% more Indian tourists have come to our country last year, compared to 2016. Indian guests take interest in cultural-historical and festival tourism, medical spa and spa programs, city tours, event tourism and other types of tourism. The opportunities, though, are even bigger because remote markets are among the prospective priorities in the ministry’s marketing policy, explained Minister Angelkova.

She also noted our country’s record-breaking performance in tourism over the last two years, highlighting Bulgaria’s potential to attract growing investments in the sector as a four-season destination. Our country’s advantages include one of the lowest corporate tax rates, which encourages entrepreneurs to make business in our country. For the purpose we set up a map of investment projects in tourism, which we are now building on with a second stage and new proposals, said the Bulgarian Minister of Tourism.
