To survive Covid-19 shock, Kerala needs to focus on areas like medical tourism

Focusing on medical tourism and attaining self-sufficiency in agriculture assume great significance, says top entrepreneur from Kerala

Covid-19 has affected Kerala economy in a catastrophic manner. But the state has all the potential to survive the shock.

“Many of our core industries such as travel & tourism, seafood exports are badly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic,” says Dr Viju Jacob, Managing Director, Synthite Industries.

“Many Keralites working abroad lost their jobs and had to return to Kerala. The days ahead are going to be much challenging for us.”

According to Viju Jacbo, the best thing Kerala can do is to make use of the potential areas like medical tourism and Ayurveda for the revival. “Attaining self-sufficiency in agricultural sectors (revival of barren land), improving the medical education sector (Kerala is well known for supplying the medical staff across Globe), increasing the public expenditure and creation of more job opportunities are some of the factors the government should focus on,” he adds.
