Namibia launches new tourism bodies

Written by 
The Ministry of Environment and Tourism in Namibia has established two new tourism bodies, through which the government seeks to address factors hindering the growth of local tourism, and transform the country into a competitive destination, APA learned on Tuesday.

The 32-member National Tourism Competitiveness Advisory Council (NTCAC) will serve as a think-tank, and will advise the government on tourism business and investment matters.

It will further advise the ministry on challenges that impede the growth and development of the tourism sector.

Namibia’s Inter-Ministerial Committee on Tourism Development (ICTD) that consists of 34 members will serve as an intermediary, between the government departments and agencies, in order to harmonise different government policies that impact tourism. 
The ministry has also launched the National Sustainable Tourism Growth and Development Strategy and National Tourism Investment Profile and Promotion Strategy, that are meant to address constraints and the strategic re-positioning of the Namibian tourism sector into a key national economic and development sector.
