TTAG Goa’s long-pending demand for tourism board to be realized soon

Published on : Thursday, November 30, 2017

TTAGThe Travel and Tourism Association of Goa’s (TTAG) long-pending demand for a tourism board is likely to be realized as soon as the government and industry stakeholders reach an agreement over the composition of the board.

 

The government wants senior officials linked to the tourism department on the board, which industry stakeholders feel will defeat the purpose for which the independent board was proposed to be created.

 

The final decision is yet to be taken on the issue.

 
“We need to examine success rate of boards entirely officiated by tourism stakeholders. The master planner has also been asked to submit details of boards dominated by government representatives,” according to a senior official.

 
The president of TTAG Savio Messias said that there is no justification for creating another body if it comprises government officials. “We already have the tourism department and Goa tourism development corporation,” Messias said.

 
A tourism stakeholder said the reason for demanding for such a board is because they have seen “unprofessional functioning” of the tourism ministry with respect to marketing and promotional activities.
