Tourism industry is the one of the worst affected due to the pandemic. Goa is one such state which gets its largest revenue from tourism and the government has now sought financial assistance from the Centre to revive the state’s tourism industry which has been hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The tourism industry has been affected by the pandemic and the Centre’s support is required for its revival. I am confident that the central government will consider our demand,” Goa CM Sawant said.
He said the state’s revenue has already taken a hit due to the closure of the mining industry, which was one of the prominent economic pillars of the state.
The financial assistance has been sought to revive the tourism industry, specially hinterland tourism.
