London: â€œLondon is a popular centre for tourism, one of its prime industries, employing the equivalent of 350,000 full-time workers in 2003, while annual expenditure by tourists is around Â£15 billionâ€ informed Sandeep Marwah Managing Director of National Federation of Tourism And Transport Cooperatives of India Limited in a press meet at Hotel Mayfair at London
â€œLondon attracts over 16 million international visitors per year, making it Europeâ€™s most visited city. London attracts 27 million overnight-stay visitors every yearâ€ added Marwah who is also the President of International Chamber of Media And Entertainment Industry.
Londonâ€™s bus network is one of the largest in the world, running 24 hours a day, with about 8,500 buses, more than 700 bus routes and around 19,500 bus stops. In 2013, the network had more than 2 billion commuter trips per annum, more than the Underground.
â€œWe will soon prepare a study report on the tourism and transport of London so that we can guide the ministry back home,â€ confirmed Marwah.
