Tanzania: Govt to Identify New Tourist Attractions

THE government will continue to identify new tourist attractions in the country with the intention to increase income from the sector, the Prime Minister, Mr Kassim Majaliwa has said.

He made the remarks in a speech read on his behalf by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism, Professor Adolf Mkenda, during a launching of the Same District's Tourism and Environmental Strategic Plans that was held at Chome area, within Same District in Kilimanjaro Region recently.

"Tanzania has many tourist attractions which are yet to be identified, due to this factor the government is determined to visualise and market them both inside and outside the country so as to increase the number of tourists in the country as well as income accrued from the tourism sector," he said.

The PM noted that the launch of the strategic plan by the Same District was a big step which reflected the government's plans meant to improve the tourism sector in the country.

"May I assure you that the government will collaborate with the Same District leadership and its people in general in making sure these strategies you are launching today become successful," he said.
