President Filipe Nyusi of Mozambique said yesterday in Maputo that the country should be Africa’s “most exotic tourist destination” by 2025.
Nyusi was referring to the government’s ambitions in the tourist area when he spoke at the opening of the Rani Towers, a development consisting of apartments and office and commercial space on Maputo’s ‘Marginal’.
“Our vision for tourism is that by 2025 our country will be the most exotic tourist destination on the African continent,” the Mozambican head of state said.
Mozambique, he continued, has excellent beaches, ecotourism zones and cultural events, conditions for the country to be a benchmark and leader in the sector.
“The tourism sector, because it is transversal, has great potential to boost the national economy and generate employment, as can be seen in the fact that currently this sector employs more than 58,000 workers directly and indirectly in Mozambique,” the president said.
To make Mozambique more attractive to investments, the government would remain committed to removing obstacles to business, the president said.
“We will not rest until we remove the last obstacle to business,” President Nysui said, citing the recent approval of regulations which reduce procedures and time for licensing businesses as an example of the government’s commitment to creating an investment-friendly environment.
Rani Towers is one of the largest buildings in Mozambique and stands out on Maputo’s Avenida Marginal owing to its modern, iconic architecture. The venture is owned by Rani Investment of Dubai and Minor Hotel Group of Thailand.Source: Lusa
