The state tourism department on Monday conducted a roadshow in Goa to woo more tourists from the state.
Though tourism departments of both states had inked a pact in July 2011 to promote tourism in each other’s region, it is yet to pay dividends for Odisha. While only about 2,700 domestic tourists from Goa visited Odisha last year, the Odisha tourism department has so far not received a single tourist from Goa via the Goa tourism.
“We have so far sent several families on package tours to Goa. But the Goa tourism has not yet sold any of our tour packages. We are hopeful that the road show would benefit us,” said Alok Mishra, marketing manager of Odisha tourism development corporation (OTDC).
