Panaji, July 17 (IANS) The Goa government could soon come up with a policy to attract investment in the Information Technology (IT) sector, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar told the Goa legislative assembly Tuesday.
“The government may come up with an investment policy in the IT sector to encourage IT industry in Goa,” Parrikar, who is also the Minister for Information and Technology told the monsoon session of the state legislative assembly.
Parrikar has been an advocate of small-to-mid business process outsourcing (BPO) IT firms setting shop in Goa, which could stop out-migration of educated youngsters from the state.
