Maharashtra leader minister Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday inaugurated the Chipi airport in Sindhudurg with a watch on spice up ‘monsoon tourism’ in Konkan area. The state has been specializing in tactics to maximize the tourism sector’s contribution to the state’s GDP and spice up localised employment.
Tourism Minister Aaditya Thackeray had lately lately mentioned that mentioned the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) govt used to be operating to “create pleasure” about the state as a tourist destination. He said that the beach shack policy in Sindhudurg was awaiting environment clearance.
The government can only be an enabler, he said, while stressing on more private participation in the tourism sector. Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, the involvement and interest of the private sector was encouraging, he said.
He noted that travel restrictions will last till Covid-19 exists. “But, the focus is on what we can do now. Tourists who are fully vaccinated, as per central government norms, are welcome to the state. We are looking at domestic, international, inter-state and intra-state tourists,” he mentioned.
The minister mentioned his division’s focal point used to be on maximise the tourism sector’s contribution to the state’s GDP and spice up localised employment.
“Our endeavour is to verify global vacationers transfer round Mumbai and remainder of the state for 5 to 6 days when they land for the primary time right here in India,” he said.
Thackeray lamented that despite having the best landscapes and everything needed to be called a tourist destination, the state never pitched itself so before the country and the world.
“Rains are not meant to be a situation where everything is always shut. Konkan’s beautiful landscape turns greener and the red earth is a natural wonder which people should be encouraged to explore. Let people come to just walk around, go for trekking. The agri tourism, caravans and five-star hotels will help promote monsoon tourism,” he mentioned.
