Moçambique participa da Feira Africana do Turismo -2024

Mozambique is among the 26 African countries taking part in the 2024 edition of the African Tourism Fair, which kicks off this Monday in the South African city of Durban.

This is the first time that 26 African countries will be taking part in the event, including the debut of Burkina Faso, Guinea Conakry and Eritrea, where more than a thousand registered African exhibitors will showcase the best that the African continent has to offer in terms of tourism.

There will be three hundred and forty-four tourism products on display, compared to three hundred and one last year, according to a note from the South African Ministry of Tourism, quoted by Rádio Moçambique.

The fair will bring together around 900 potential buyers from all over the world, representing travel agencies, destination marketing companies and airlines.

South Africa argues that tourism should be seen and considered as a driver of the economy, recently affected by the covid-19 pandemic.

The South Africans are expected to present updated data on the recovery of the sector, after the "brake" imposed by the new coronavirus.

The official opening ceremony of the African Tourism Fair is scheduled for tomorrow and will be addressed by the South African Minister of Tourism, Patrice De Lille, according to the South African press.

South African authorities guarantee that all the arrangements have been made for the event to run smoothly.
