Enterprise and Industry, European Commission Vice President Antonio Tajani has hinted the possibility of flexible visa rules for tourist traveling to the European Union member countries from India while talking to the visiting delegation of Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) in Brussels.
Mr. Tajani said, “European Union wants more flexible rules for tourists coming from India.” The laxed visa rules for nationals of India will boost the tourism in the region.
The flexible tourist visa laws will also allow a large population of Catholic Christians living in India to come and visit European Union. Airlines can play important role by offering concessional travel packages during the time of the year when not many tourists are travelling to Europe, thus, making it more affordable for tourists from India.
Senior Vice-President of FICCI, Naina Lal Kidwai pointed out that European businesses must consider investing in lucrative business opportunities in the defence, infrastructure, tourism, nuclear and space technology.
Mr. Tajani showed willingness to send tourism missions to India in order to promote the tourism between European Union and India.
European Union and India are considering a comprehensive free trade agreement between India and European Union that will also enable the professionals from India to travel to EU with minimum visa requirements.
Enterprise and Industry, European Commission is striving to strengthen the sustainable competitiveness of Europe’s industrial base, including the contribution it makes to societal goals. The other main objectives include ensuring an open goods internal market and support the European presence in space and the development of satellite-based services.
