Prabhu, who is also holding the civil aviation portfolio, said that the ministry has launched a program for skill development, which will lead to job creation.

"Whether in the cockpit, flying crew or on the ground, the workforce is required everywhere. Therefore, to promote this, we are identifying service sector as a major growth engine," he said.

The minister also said that he has held meeting with international airlines to market Goa as a tourist destination.

"I am talking to foreign airlines as they always have marketing program for destination.

"I am going to tell them that market globally. This is a major program that we have launched so that Goa will get more tourists," he added.
