Uganda Tourism will attract more tourists from China, as most of the tourists from China love to explore the other countries culture and rich history along with the tribal junctions and for this Uganda participated in China Guangdong International Tourism Expo as part of promotional efforts to get at least four million tourists from the world’s largest outbound tourist nation. Now Uganda will participate in General Assembly of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation in Chengdu, Sichuan Province.
Prof Kamuntu is heading a delegation of government and private sector players to promote this African nation where the tribal history and culture is rich than any other African nation in General Assembly of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation in Chengdu, Sichuan Province.
Prof Kamuntu said that they are going to go on board on an aggressive marketing campaign in this important market. The minister was accompanied by Stephen Asiimwe, the Chief Executive Officer of the Uganda Tourism Board (UTB), staff of the Guangzhou Consulate, led by Ambassador Solomon Rutega, Uganda’s consul general in Guangzhou and official from the Uganda embassy in Beijing.
In this year’s budget, the tourism department of Uganda has included an item for market representation and public relations.
They hope that this will help strengthen the presence in the Chinese market in increasing the visibility and awareness of the destination and grow visitor stay and spend in Uganda.
The expo and conference of China Guangdong International Tourism Expo, was held at the Pazhou Exhibition Complex in Guangzhou, the capital Guangdong, China’s richest province, with a GDP of $1.15 trillion and a population of over 110 million people.
China Guangdong International Tourism Expo was organised as part of continuing activities by the consulate to generate further awareness of Uganda as a favourable tourist destination.
Ambsaador Rutega said since the establishment of the consulate, trade, investment and tourism had increased tremendously.
The minister is in Guangzhou, as part of his visit to China, during which he will attend the General Assembly of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation in Chengdu, Sichuan Province.
He will also preside over another consulate-organised conference on promoting Uganda’s investment and tourism opportunities in Nanning City, Guangxi province next week.
