The government will organise a two-day 'BRICS Convention on Tourism' in Madhya Pradesh from September 1 to promote intra-regional tourism, ahead of the the BRICS Summit to be hosted by India. As a precursor to the BRICS Summit in Goa on October 15-16, the convention in Khajuraho will be attended by a delegation from the BRICS countries, an official release said. Apart from inter-governmental exchange of views and ideas, the event organised by the Tourism Ministry will also witness panel discussions on technology, innovation in tourism, and cooperation between the BRICS countries for promoting intra-regional tourism, it added. Elements of culture, handicrafts and cuisine from different regions of India will also be showcased during the convention.
