Positioning Kerala as a medical hub for the development and manufacturing of cutting edge medical technologies and healthcare solutions and finding innovative cost-effective solutions for identified special clinical needs relevant to Kerala and Indian society


Developing Kerala as Coastal Cycling Tourist Destination
Tourism is the most vibrant and dynamic sector of the Kerala Economy, contributing more than 10% to the GDP of the State in 2015.  Cycling tourism has developed in western countries, China and other places but has not been tapped by Kerala.  The State’s favorable geographic and climatic conditions and its beautiful shoreline provide ample attractions for cyclists.  Government’s approved Coastal Highway Project provides a good opportunity to establish a cycling track alongside.
