In a press release, Goa Minister Dilip Parulekar said that currently our efforts are concentrated on advancing the infrastructure so that Goa remains a favorite of globetrotters.
The IAS Director of Goa Tourism Department Ameya Abhyankar said “From discos to pubs to hotels to beaches to exuberant atmosphere, Goa offers so much to tourists. This makes it a very obvious choice for vacationing.” He further added “We are aware that tourism plays an important role in country’s growth and we are ensuring that Goa remains in forefront of this growth.”
