In order to further promote the USA as a preferred destination among Indian travellers from South India, the Visit USA Committee (VUSACOM) formally launched its Bengaluru Chapter last week, stated a release. Under the leadership Ashwini Kakkar, President, VUSACOM India and Manoj Gursahani, Vice President, VUSACOM, this is the third chapter to be set up in India after Mumbai and New Delhi.
The India committee of VUSACOM comprises travel companies that are promoting USA, state tourism boards, attractions, hotels and airlines, in addition to Honorary Committee Members from the U.S. Consulate General. The objective of VUSACOM is to enhance tourist traffic from India to USA, to facilitate simpler Visa processing practices and act as a platform for travel agents and USA tour suppliers to work closely with each other. Earlier this year a meeting between members of VUSACOM Bengaluru Chapter and the U.S. Department of Commerce was attended by Consul General Chennai to discuss plans to meet the mutual objectives of growing tourism to U.S.A.
