Other Opportunities Service Sector : Tourism Health Education

Tripura is an attractive tourist destination. The state has a rich cultural heritage. There are a number of historical Hindu, and Buddhist sites. The State also has rich flora and fauna.

Eco-tourism is having potential in the State. There is also great potential for development of tourist circuits, involving all the NE states and if possible, Bangladesh as well. All this offers attractive opportunities for the Hospitality Industry.

The Govt. of Tripura has always put a lot of emphasis on healthcare for all. Over the years, a reasonably good infrastructure of health institutions has been created in the State. However, providing good healthcare to all the citizens is a gigantic task and in this respect, private sectors can play a very significant role.

There are 2 (two) Medical Colleges, one in the Government sector and another one in Private sector. These Colleges have super speciality divisions and modern radiology division. There are nursing institutes in Private & Government Sector. Para Medical College is also coming up. Also, there are some private Nursing Homes in the State and there is potential for more private investment in this important sector.

The Government of Tripura has similarly put a lot of emphasis on providing good education to all people and the result is a very high level of literacy in the State. The State has a Central University, ICFAI University, a National Institute of Technology (NIT), One Agriculture College, One Engineering College and a Polytechnic Institute. However, there is a great potential for private investment in this field also, by way of setting up of educational institutions in fields like Information Technology, Telecommunication, Bio-Technology etc.
