V M Salgaocar Institute of International Hospitality Education (VMSIIHE), Manora-Raia, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Turismo de Portugal. The MoU was signed by Dattaraj V Salgaocar, chairman, VMSIIHE, and Luis Araújo, president, Turismo de Portugal, in the presence of Portuguese prime minister António Costa, who was in Goa on a state visit.

“At our institute we offer a unique curriculum, internationally trained faculty and world-class infrastructure to prepare the students for the ever-changing needs of the hospitality industry,” he added.

“Our goal is to make this institute the centre of excellence for the hospitality industry in India, and we believe we have come one step closer to that goal with the signing of this MoU,” Mirza said.
