We, at OTOAI, aim to foster an environment of collaboration with various stakeholders through our ideology of collective ambition. The NTOs and DMCs are important stakeholders in our efforts to develop a marketplace for outbound travel that is profitable, growing and a rewarding place to work, invest and do business.
We at OTOAI are in the process of giving a final shape of our official website â€“ www.otoai .org. This website will be a complete resource for all stakeholders of outbound tourism industry in India.
