Caves and waterfalls in the state would also become important tourist attractions.
"These tourist centers will be immediately attracted by the construction of access roads to them, as well as the concrete paths leading into the caves to make them easily accessible" a spokesman for the state Governor Willie Obiano said.
The move is seen as an attempt to increase employment and income in a region where poverty is high.
