PTI, PANAJI | 08 June 2011 19:41 IST

Goa tourism department is planning to tie up with Nice, a picturesque city in France, to provide better facilities to tourists visiting the state capital.

The tie-up would be done in specific areas such as rapid transportation system and solid waste treatment.

Both the cities will collaborate on these issues on a time-bound programme, senior officials said.

Confirming the development, Goa Tourism director Swapnil Naik said that the state is definitely keen on partnering with France on this initiative.

"We have invited a technical team from Nice, to study the conditions in Goa and to chalk out a feasible plan for execution."

In the meantime, Goa is doing its ground work and planning. "In the coming weeks, we will be discussing the modalities of the exchange programme with the Commissioner of the City of Panjim (CCP)," Naik said.

dear readers

goa tourism department only thinks of doing such things but for the last several years done nothing, not even can keep the beaches clean.is it not enough that money was experimented on the konkan railway skybus which is hanging corroded in front of thge margao railway station. the indian trains are not safe on two tracks below them ,what would have been the fate of transportation if the sky bus was implemented as a mode of transportation.dubai created arecord by building the metro in record time ,i feel to change goa into another france it needs decades, i think this is anothers ideas by our 4o theives to ransack the goan treasury.
