A trophy for this recognition was handed over to the state chief minister Prof. Prem Kumar Dhumal by the Principal Secretary of Tourism, Miss. Manisha Nanda and the director of Tourism & Civil Aviation, Mr. Arun Sharma; on behalf of the publication group.

On receiving the award, the chief minister congratulated the state’s Department of Tourism & Civil Aviation for continuously maintaining best conditions in all tourist destinations of the State. “This,” he said, “has been favorable in attracting a high number of tourists from within India as well as from rest of the world to Himachal Pradesh.” He went on to say that the state had recorded 1.14 Crore tourists during the financial year 2009-10, which was 17% higher than tourist received in the financial year 2008-09.

Elaborating further, the chief minister said that Himachal Pradesh was expecting 23% more tourists during the current financial year (2010-2011). He said, “I am confident that this will be soon possible as our officials are working toward creating a hospitable condition for all the tourists who visit Himachal Pradesh to spend their holidays in its pollution free and peaceful environment.”

Thanking the Outlook Group for the recognition, Prof. Dhumal said that the award was possible due to the up gradation of state tourism infrastructure. “The State Government would be giving top priority to up gradation of tourist infrastructural development. Our next aim will be in pulling high end tourists who have limited holiday time with them and hence are looking forward for best holiday options in Himachal Pradesh. Top priority would be given in future for environment safe and scientific disposal of garbage in the urban areas to create a hygienic and clean city.”
