"The Global Ayurveda Festival will witness the participation of ministries like Ayush, Commerce and Industry, MSME, Tourism, External Affairs, etc., which will take the event to a new level," said Muraleedharan, Chairman of the 4th Global Ayurveda Festival at a Press Conference.

The fourth edition of GAF is scheduled to be held from May 16 to 20, at the Adlux International Convention and Exhibition Centre in Angamaly.
