Arunachal Pradesh will soon have a rail link and an airport which will help it in exploiting the tourism potential, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram said.

Work on both projects were on and millions of tourists from the world over were waiting to enjoy the pristine natural beauty of the hilly forested border state, Chidambaram said at a function after launching a bamboo processing unit at Poma model village, 35 km from here.

He said tourism created more jobs than the same amount of money invested in other sectors.

Elaborating, Chidambaram said for every one rupee crore invested in steel and other industries, only five jobs were created, but over 100 were created with an equal investment in tourism.
