Tourism PPP for Puducherry

6 March 2013 Government officials in Puducherry, India, have drawn up plans to launch a new PPP scheme to help boost tourism.

Welfare and tourism minister P Rajavelu announced to officials of the tourism department this week that the area’s administration had drawn up plans to construct a convention centre with a capacity to accommodate 3,000 spectators through a public-private partnership.

Rajavelu said there was a need for the centre as three new hotels had recently been completed, and the establishment of airport operating services in Bangalore has also resulted in an increase in tourists.
