The Mozambican government has decided to create a Tourism Forum (FORTUR) as a platform to coordinate the sector’s policies and serve as a regulatory framework for the tourism industry in Mozambique.
Speaking at weekly press briefing yesterday in Maputo after the end of the 15th regular session of the Council of Ministers, government spokesman Mouzinho Saíde explained that FORTUR would aid inter-sectoral coordination in the development of the tourism sector.
Saíde added that FORTUR, the proposal founding which would shortly be submitted to the Assembly of the Republic, would provide a platform to address the challenges facing the tourism sector.
Mozambique is endowed with spectacular beaches and islands along its 2,500km Indian Ocean coastline while the prevailing political peace and stability also provides a welcoming environment for investment in tourism.Source: AIM Moçambique
