Why Goa?

Of all the affected industries in the Covid-19 pandemic, the travel & tourism industry appears to have taken the hardest hit globally, impacting various associated sectors. According to the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTCC), the Covid-19 pandemic is likely to cost the tourism industry almost USD 22 billion and a loss of nearly 50 million jobs worldwide. Goa tourism alone suffered a loss of Rs 2,000-7,200 cr in 2020.
We are looking to rebuild and re-emerge from the crisis while the world is still battling the pandemic. We realised it takes an ecosystem to tackle the challenges.
