Mozambique: Nyusi Urges Profitable and Sustainable Tourism Industry

Jakarta – Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi on Monday urged the countries bathed by the Indian Ocean to work together to transform tourism into a profitable, sustainable and inclusive industry.

In this way, he argued, a dynamic would emerge from tourism products and services which could be a driving force in the growth of the economies of those countries.

Nyusi was speaking in Jakarta during the third session of the Business Forum of the Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA), held under the theme “Towards the Sustainable and Equitable Growth of the Indian Ocean Rim”.

The event is being held on the eve of Tuesday’s summit of IORA heads of state and government.

In his intervention, Nyusi said the event was an appropriate forum for exchanging experiences, and sharing good practices and challenges, as well as to draw up common perspectives for capitalizing on tourist activity.
