Maha, NSW MoU on tourism management


MUMBAI
Maharashtra Government and New South Wales (NSW) Government have announced their further plans, after the successful completion of a year of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between them. The sister state MoU will focus more on tourism management this year.

Speaking exclusively with Financial Express Online, Prithviraj Chavan, chief minister, Maharashtra, said, “Tourism is a very important segment for our economy. This MoU will surely help in exchange of tourists between both the states. But more than increasing tourism footfall, we would be focusing on tourism management and learn from each other.”

Better connectivity is very important for increasing tourism between the two states. Increasing the number of flights between Mumbai and Sydney was focused upon. Speaking on the connectivity of the sister states, Barry O’Farrell MP, premier, New South Wales said, “There are a lot of Air India flights between Delhi and Sydney, but I request Prithviraj Chavan to demand for more Air India flights between Mumbai and Sydney. India has always been one of our main priority for tourism.”
