At the moment, the entire sector is reeling under the impact of the pandemic and we are witnessing its cascading effects on the field of hospitality education as well. Under the present environment, all stakeholders should join hands to ensure that the growth prospects of the hospitality industry do not get hamstrung due to current challenges. With the launch of the scholarship scheme, FHRAI and its regional associations will take the lead to promote hospitality education in the country to pick up from where we left off before the pandemic,” said Gurbaxish Singh Kohli, Vice President, FHRAI.
