Centre Plans Coast Tourism


In the coming years, coastal and maritime tourism will be a source for growth and job creation in the coastal states of India.


So Odisha with 480 Kilometer of Coast holds huge opportunities on Maritime Tourism, feel experts.
 

The Minister for Shipping Mansukh Mandaviya and  Minister for Tourism & Culture, Prahlad Singh Patel discussed  the immense potential for  maritime tourism in the country.

In a  meeting between the two Ministers held in New Delhi on 31 July, both the  Ministers  emphasized  the need to promote the important tourist destinations in the coastal areas of the country through coastal tourism .
 

This was decided in the meeting to set up a committee of senior officials of the two Ministries to explore the avenues for coastal tourism  in the country and work out ways to promote the same.

It was also  decided to explore  the possibilities and opportunities in the areas of  Coastal Tourism, Cruise Tourism, Sea Sports, Light House Viewing Gallery. 

This was suggested that every coastal area can create a calendar of events for  tourist engagement, with activities like beach volleyball, sand art, food festivals, dances of the fishing community, to name a few.

 

The Shipping Ministry is promoting tourism in maritime states under the Sagarmala Program.

This is being done in convergence with the Ministry of Tourism and Tourism Development Departments of Maritime State Governments.

 

These new, unexplored tourism areas will open a door to coastal communities of the maritime states where they will find many new and diverse job opportunities.

The two Ministers also underscored the need  for better coordination and synergy between their respective Ministries so that desired results can be achieved in a time bound manner.
