In a bid to augment the number of Indian tourists to Poland, Polish Tourist Organisation (PTO) plans to conduct a specialist training programme for the Indian travel trade either in April or September 2008 in New Delhi and Mumbai. The programme will essentially educate the travel agents about various destinations in Poland and their offerings for tourists.

"In terms of the main attractions, we are looking to promote the city of Warsaw and Krakow to the Indian tourists. We will be promoting the cultural significance of the country to the visitors," said Rafal Szmytke, President, PTO. "Currently, we are talking to a couple of travel agents in India to know the right time for conducting the specialist training programme," he added.

The country received about 10,000 Indian tourists in 2007, and for the present year, the tourism board claims to have no specific targets, but intends to receive as many tourists as possible. "India is one of the major markets for Poland. But, right now we are just looking at spreading awareness about the destination and bringing in more Indian tourists to the country. In Asia, currently, we have our representation office only in Japan. In the near future though, we may look at setting up an office in India," offered Szmytke.
