Vivek Anand, Country Manager said “We have seen a remarkable rise of Indian footfalls to Mauritius from all target groups i.e.​ FIT, MICE, Wedding, Families and honeymooners. I would like to thank all stakeholders for partnering MTPA in this endeavour. We have seen more wedding and MICE groups showing interest in Mauritius. We also initiated direct interaction with the consumers – promotions in malls and during Golf tournaments, Radio campaigns and a destination promotion series on NDTV Good Times anchored by Rocky & Mayur helped us to increase awareness about the destination.
