SHILLONG, Jan 9: With Meghalaya now reopen for tourism, the state government is now chalking out plans to make Meghalaya a “high value-low volume sustainable tourism destination”.
Taking to Twitter, the chief minister on Saturday said, “Meghalaya has reopened for tourism and the government has undertaken various initiatives and safety measures to make tourism safe for all traveling during COVID times”.
The chief minister also announced that the state government, in the near future, will make an investment of Rs 200 crore for creating high-value accommodation and tourism infrastructure.
Conrad further informed that the planning for the iconic tourism projects has been finalised while the government has put in thorough COVID-19 prevention protocols to ensure safety in the state.
According to the chief minister, the government is investing in tourism infrastructure and developing tourism circuits.
It may be mentioned that the tumult over the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) and the Inner Line Permit (ILP), and the subsequent outbreak of COVID-19 have taken a toll on the state’s tourism industry.
Now as the scenario continues to ameliorate, tourists have started paying visit to the hills anew, albeit adhering to a mandatory registration process.
The tourists entering the state are to register themselves with the Meghalaya Government and produce a COVID- negative certificate at the Umling entry point.
