‘Kerala Evening’ enthrals Silicon Valley


WASHINGTON: The vibrant cultural experience of the Indian state of Kerala captured the imagination of corporate leaders attending a “Kerala Evening” in Silicon Valley, which is home to the world’s top technology companies.

Kathakali and Kalaripayattu performers enthralled a packed venue of the event organized by Kerala Tourism in partnership with Confederation of Indian Industry(CII) and US-India Business Council on Thursday in Palo Alto, California.

“It is a significant day in the history of our state’s tourism sector,” said Kerala tourism minister AP Anilkumar.

“The United States is a key market for Kerala Tourism. In-bound tourism from America to Kerala has grown about 40 per cent in the past two years,” he said.

“Our first-ever corporate meet in the Silicon Valley is a crucial step to further increase those numbers.”

The executives of over 50 companies in Silicon Valley attended the corporate meet addressed by Kerala tourism principal secretary G Kamala Vardhana Rao.
