Panaji: The high-level committee headed by Goa Chief Secretary has finalized and submitted to the state government, Goa Tourism Policy, which will map the future directions for this industry.

State Tourism Director Menino D’Souza said on Thursday that Goa Tourism Policy has been recently submitted to State Tourism Minister Manohar Ajgaonkar.

The  evaluation committee headed by State Chief Secretary Parimal Rai has prepared the policy, which will overlap all the similar policies of the past.

D’Souza said that all the stakeholders were taken into confidence while drafting the policy.

The Tourism Director said that the policy will decide future directions for the industry. KPMG were appointed as consultant to prepare this policy, along with Tourism Masterplan for the State.

Goa attracts around 60 lakh tourists who throng here annually on the beaches.

D’Souza said that the State Cabinet will have to approve the policy before placing it before Goa Legislative Assembly.

He said that the existing Goa Tourist Trade Act will have to be amended to incorporate the features of this policy.
