India Places 34th on the World Tourism Index - Ranking Lower Than Thailand, Malaysia, Korea

India is witnessing a considerable growth in the tourism industry as it takes an upward scale by ranking the 34th position on world travel and tourism competitiveness index. India has moved 6 places up on the scale, with due credit to natural and cultural resources and competitive prices. 

As per the reports “India, which accounts for the majority of South Asia's T&T (travel and tourism) GDP, remains the sub-region's most competitive T&T economy, moving up six places to rank 34th globally. India showed the greatest percentage improvement to its overall Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index (TTCI) score, which has helped it become the only lower-middle income country in the top 35.”

Countries that stand tall in the ranking of Cultural Resources and Business Travel Pillar are China, Mexico, Malaysia, Thailand, Brazil, and India. These nations aren't high income economic nations but still hold a position amongst the top 35. 

Reports state that India ranks 33rd in the arena of better air infrastructure, 28th for port infrastructure. It has international openness ranked at 51st, natural resources ranked at 14th and cultural resources ranked at 8th place. India has advanced in many arenas such as business environment, overall T&T policy, enabling conditions, infrastructure, and information and communications technology. 

However, there is great scope in improvement on the fronts of departments of environment, tourist service infrastructure, and environmental sustainability.
