The Kerala government will work on a project that promotes Fort Kochi as the state’s foremost tourist destination, Tourism Minister Mr. P A Mohamed Riyas said.
The authorities will convene a special meeting on this matter and take the plan forward once the current wave of Covid-19 subsides. The minister also visited Fort Kochi’s South Beach that suffered sea erosion recently.
“Vaccination for Kerala Tourism employees, including guides, will soon be completed. As for restoring the South Beach here, a renovation project will be drafted after holding discussions with pertinent departments,” said Mr. Riyas.
Ernakulam district has immense tourism potential as it also houses the Kochi international airport in Nedumbassery. The district has several destinations which foreign tourists can visit once the pandemic is over, the Minister said.
