The Swiss Education Group and Samagra Shiksha Uttarakhand have struck a contract to provide school pupils with training in the tourism and hospitality industries.
“Uttarakhand has significant job potential in the tourism and hospitality industries, and our students will be better prepared to take advantage of these opportunities by becoming proficient in these fields. The Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, Pushkar Singh Dhami, who was present for the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), predicted that this deal will prove to be a landmark.
The state government makes ongoing efforts to promote tourism. Alongside promotion of religious, spiritual and adventure tourism, many steps are also being taken to boost eco-tourism, wellness and hospitality, he said.
On the Chardham Yatra, thousands of devotees travel across Uttarakhand, and the state administration works to encourage year-round travel by visitors and pilgrims.
He claimed that the Manaskhand Mandir Mala Mission is being worked on quickly for this. In the first stage of the project, sixteen significant temples in the Kumaon region would be renovated and connected to one another, he stated.
The MoU was signed by Swiss Education Group’s executive director Hiraj Artinian and Samagra Shiksha’s project director Banshidhar Tiwari.
