Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant recently said that the tourism and allied sectors present job opportunities to the youth from other states. While speaking at a webinar on 'Career Opportunities in Hospitality, Retail & Events’ he urged youth from the coastal state to take up career opportunities in these fields, on Wednesday.
The CM said, "We say Goa is a tourist state. The scope for tourism, retail and event management is increasing by the day. More than 80 lakh tourists visit Goa (annually). But the youth working in this industry come in from the neighbouring states like Karnataka and Maharashtra."
He added, "Not just these states, youth from Jammu Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh too work here. Why can't Goans find employment here? Time has come for our youth to work in these industries and build their careers.”
