Speaking on the occasion, Vishal Kumar Dev, Commissioner – cum – Secretary, Tourism, Government of Odisha said, “The pandemic has changed the travel preferences of the tourist.

“Strict adherence to COVID protocols and proactive compliance of safety measures have been the bedrock of our Tourism campaign,” Dev added.

He welcomed stakeholders of Jharkhand to experience the essence of Odisha and the new tourism products which the state has launched.

A detailed presentation by Odisha tourism highlighted the steps taken by Odisha to train the local stakeholders on safety protocols and assured that all the necessary precautions are in place.

A workshop to train the tour operators will be held soon so that the stakeholders are prepared to welcome the guests. A dedicated online portal will update tourists about the safety of the destination to boost their confidence to travel.
