Beaches, Backwaters, Ayurveda Major Tourism Thrust Areas: Jose Cyriac

K.Jose Cyriac IAS belongs to that cadre of silently efficient officials who always have more than a handful of assignments and portfolios to attend to and takes them all in their stride. Cyriac’s assignments in the recent years, in addition to Tourism, included such diverse areas as Public Works, Food and Civil Supplies, Animal Husbandry and Dairy Development. As Secretary, Tourism for the past one year, he carries very definite ideas about the State’s priority areas of development, as well as convincing answers as to why we lag behind in certain fields.
