Panaji: Health Minister Vishwajit Rane today spell out State government’s plan to promote the coastal State as “destination of medical tourism”.
Rane said that there are many foreign as well as domestic tourists that visit Goa looking for quality health care.
He said private and government hospitals will have to work unitedly to ensure Goa becomes a destination for people from other countries, who use health facilities like dental and other procedures to be done.
“Government alone cannot do it. We have to encourage private hospitals to work together to ensure that Goa becomes a destination of medical tourism,” Minister said.
Rane is likely to meet Union Minister for Health Dr Harsha Vardhan in this regard shortly.
