After Pressure From Stakeholders Goa Restarted Tourism

Chief minister Pramod Sawant on Friday said that there was a lot of pressure from tourism stakeholders to start the tourism industry and the government acceded to their demand as it is an economic activity.
 

“At present, Goans require employment and there was immense pressure from tourism stakeholders to restart the sector. After considering all the aspects and putting standard operating procedures in place, we have started the tourism industry,” Sawant said.

With the state government allowing hotels to restart operations and accept bookings for tourists, BJP state president Sadanand Shet Tanavade on Friday said that the government must have taken this decision based on the Centre’s Unlock 2 guidelines.

He also said that although flights have started, there are hardly any passengers. “There were demands that flights should begin, but today 50% of the flights are being cancelled. Everybody has become health conscious and people are worried about their well-being,” Tanavade said.
