City to host 2011 World Eco-tourism meet

Speaking at the launch of a corporate brochure and picture book to commemorate 30 years of Jungle Lodges and Resorts (JLR), he said the international convention centre that is being constructed at Devanhalli Business Park would be ready in time for hosting the event.

“We will also start a Night Safari on the 180-acre Bannerghatta National Park that has been planned at a cost of Rs 120 crore. Currently, the concept of  night safari is available at only four other places in the world. Bannerghatta will be the fifth wild life park to start this facility. The planning for the night safari has been done by the same agency that has done the night safari project at Singapore,” said Reddy.

In his address, Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa said he expects Rs 20,000 crore of investment proposals in the State tourism sector at next month’s ‘Global Investors Meet’.

Two books, ‘Wild Vistas’ and ‘Jungle Tales’ were released on the occasion. Three awards instituted in the memory of Col John Wakefield (Papa), the founder of JLR were given away on the occasion.
