"Goa is proud to have an understanding with Portugal because it was ruling Goa prior to 1961 and, at the time, had implemented development works," Mr. Dhavalikar said.

"Considering all this, we can definitely think, in future, regarding the development of Goa based on the Portugal basis (model)," he told.

"It is the duty of the Goa government to take the help of Portugal and implement some of their good things here," he said.

Speaking about the MoU, Mr. Dhavalikar said that the two governments will collaborate on various issues including the Opa water supply project in north Goa, the sewage water treatment plant in Valpoi and manganese-removal efforts in Selaulim Reservoir.

He informed that the MoU is for a period of two years, adding that he would visit Portugal along with a team to explore areas of mutual cooperation.
