School for tourism, strategic security soon: Goa CM

Panaji, Aug 3 (IANS) The Goa government is in the process of starting a Global School of Tourism and School of Strategic and Security Studies in association with the Goa University, chief minister Laxmikant Parsekar told the state assembly on Monday.

Parsekar said starting both the schools would cost Rs.32.42 crore, which will offer post graduate courses and academic research in areas related to tourism, strategic and security studies.
