The 3rd G20 Tourism Working Group Meeting held in Kashmir from May 22 to May 24, with over 60 delegates from member nations attending the grand celebration of India’s cultural heritage and working towards promoting the tourism potential the country holds. Union Tourism Minister G Kishan Reddy stated that the event focused on addressing the five key motives – Green Tourism, Digitalisation, Skills, Ministry of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) and Destination Management. This is the first large-scale event held in Kashmir after the abrogation of Article 370 in 2019.

The three-day-long event held at Sher-i-Kashmir International Convention Centre (SKICC) had the highest participation compared to the previous two events held in Gujarat and West Bengal. The event started off with a traditional Indian welcome of the guests at the Srinagar International Airport.

The delegates of the event hailing from different countries across the world set out on a cultural exploration of Srinagar by visiting the historic Polo View Market, the Mughal Gardens and going on the famed Shikara ride at the Dal Lake.
