India assumed the presidency of the G20 grouping on December 1, 2022, and will hold the post for a year.
Tourism players in Kashmir believe that the G20 meeting can attract investors and tourists from across the globe.
The tourism industry has played a crucial role in the development of the Union Territory. However, years of instability have impacted the tourism industry, leading to a decline in the number of visitors.
