He stated that one of the way to expand those megalithic sites is with the help of storynomics tourism that gives importance to creative content, narratives, and living culture by making use of the strength of culture as the prime characteristic of a tourist hotspot.
He explained that their strategy is wrapping up these site resources with a story, or the storynomics that is expanded from one place to another and have their own discrete characteristics, as a result of which they can direct the placement of these products of cultural tourism to the right objective market.
