Angola: Minister Defends Materialisation of Okavango-Zambeze Project

Menongue — The minister of Hotels and Tourism, Pedro Mutindi, has said in Menongue City, Kuando Kubango Province, that soon his sector will start implementing the plans related to the Okavango-Zambeza tourism project, with gains for the country, especially this south-western region of Angola.

According to the minister, "it is often said that the Kuando Kubango territory is an aquarium-lung located between the Cuando and Cuvango rivers, with exceptional conditions to develop, at optimum level, the tourism sector".

He revealed that the Hotels and Tourism Ministry will join the efforts of the provincial government to transform this ideal in practical measures, able to show the nation and the world that tourism in Kuando Kubango is a fact.

The minister stressed that this is a reality that both the population and government want, aimed at collecting revenues, but also promoting the image of the province in Africa and the world.
