I think, one major (recent) impact affecting the industry is the GST rate. We hope that the upcoming budget considers a single slab below 12%. Countries like Singapore, Thailand, and Japan have encouraging tax brackets between 5 and 10%. Also, on the administration and a strategic part, we could be more flexible with VISA-ON-ARRIVAL extensions and also should bring in more countries under this bracket.

We should also expect start-up funds and R&D grants which are usually dedicated towards the IT industry can be set up for the tourism industry to boost indigenous product and service innovation.
