Tourism to Spearhead #Uganda Economy in 2017
The Ministry of Tourism in Uganda has declared that the year 2017 is a massive year for tourism sector development in the country.
The country has embarked on the tasks of tourism promotion and conservation agencies in order to initiate fresh ideas that will prepare the drive in the tourism industry for the next four years.
According to John Ssempebwa, the Deputy Executive Director of the Uganda Tourism Board, they have come up with new ideas especially in marketing, product development, research, and quality assurance with an aim of promoting the country’s tourism sector, cutting across both internationally and domestically.
“In 2017 we shall organize the Second Africa Birding Expo to showcase over 1000 species of birds seen in Uganda, an accolade which makes Uganda the only African country with most bird species,” said Ssempebwa during a press conference in Kampala.
