Djibouti Launches Campaign to Attract Tourists

The Djiboutian government has allocated 122 million francs ($680,000) to the National Tourism Office (ONTD) to boost tourism in 2013, Djibouti's La Nation reported Sunday (January 6th).

The ONTD is expected to use the majority of the funds for a promotional campaign to attract tourists to the country, highlighting Djibouti's landscapes, sea beds, cultural diversity and stable currency.

The tourism office will also upgrade services available to tourists by training restaurateurs, hoteliers and tourism agents in various aspects of hospitality.
