Seychelles has signed a new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Zambia for cooperation and exchanges in the field of tourism.
This took place during the 20th General Assembly of the United Nation’s World Tourism Organisation in Zambia recently.
The agreement was signed by Alain St Ange, Seychelles’ Minister for Tourism and Culture and Sylvia Masebo, Zambia’s Minister for Tourism and Arts. Minister St Ange said this agreement is another stepping stone in the African countries’ quest to “learn from each other success stories’’.
The MoU covers four areas of cooperation: promotion of events, research and planning, joint marketing and promotional programmes, training and tourism investment promotion.
The MoU is the third that Seychelles has signed with an African country. The first was inked with Zimbabwe followed by South Africa.
