Indian Travel and Tourism Market is one of the fastest growing sectors with its contribution to the GDP forecasted to be around 9.2% by the year 2029 from the present 6.8%. Report by several eminent organisations strongly suggest that Indian Tourism is on the verge of a major breakthrough and a professional degree in this field can lead one into countless possibilities. Be it in terms of career choices, growth prospects or the PayScale, the benefits of having a Hotel Management degree can hardly be overstated.
Conventionally, a career is Hospitality has been a less sought-after choice by youths vis-à-vis other career choices but thanks to the efforts of institute like FHRAI, which is world’s third largest Hospitality association that things are changing. If today, Indian Tourism market commands the distinction of one of the fastest growing sectors, it is but an outcome of their efforts to develop a common platform where all Industry stakeholders can voice their concerns and share their expertise, with a vision to ensure an orderly and expeditious growth.
Having said so, for any sector for prosper, availability of skilled manpower is an absolute necessary and here no amount of appreciation would be enough for the role that NCHMCT is doing in this regard. Equipping students with the required skillset, it is for their contribution that Indian Hospitality now outshines their global competitions.
As an Industry stakeholder and my association with FHRAI for a long time, I am much happy by the news of FHRAI-IHM affiliation with NCHM, Noida. Our Industry will immensely benefit from this association of two world class organisations and we hope FHRAI IHM, like it has always done, this time too will make efforts and leverage this affiliation to scale our sector to new heights of success and growth.
