Sawant said the Goa government, with the help of the Centre, has managed to create 60 to 70 per cent infrastructure required for the tourism industry in the state.

"We want to make it 100 per cent," he said. According to the chief minister while emphasis has always been given on beaches and religious places in the
tourism sector, medical tourism is one segment where there is immense potential for growth.

He said the state government will amend existing Tourist Trade Act to encourage medical tourism segment.
