New Delhi, Union Minister of State for Tourism KJ Alphons has said India is a country of wellness, with Kerala being at the heart of the wellness tourism industry.
Mr Alphons said during the inaugural session of Krishi India 2018 expo/Wellness India 2018 expo, which kicked off at Pragati Maidan here on Monday.
The Minister who has been in Kerala for the last one week, made an urgent appeal for donations to help the people of the flood-battered state.
“Nature’s fury has struck Kerala and the wellness hotspot is devastated, with 1 million people living in relief camps,” he stated.
The session also witnessed discussions around private sector investment in supply chain infrastructure and services that would lead to a reduction in waste and more added value.
The Krishi India 2018 expo and the 2nd Wellness India 2018 expo will conclude on Wednesday.
