Corporation (TTDC) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding
with Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (APTDC)
for working together to promote tourism in both the states.

TTDC offices without bothering to visit the offices of APTDC
and vice versa.

The coming together of two states would help in attracting
more visitors, the MoU said.

The two corporations would don the mantle of agents in
promoting tours and packages of the other, thus, fetching
assured revenues for both on reciprocal basis. They would
share 15 per cent commission on existing tariff of hotel
accommodation, tours and transport on reciprocal basis.

“The tie-up is historical as tourism would be used as a
platform to promote understanding and fostering friendly
relationship between the people of both the states,”Irai Anbu
