Kikwete calls for tourism sector revamp
PRESIDENT Jakaya kikwete has said Tanzania's tourism sector was underperforming compared to the natural heritage the country is endowed with and called for radical measures to revamp the industry.Speaking after exploring natural and created attractions at Jamaica's Ocho Rios tourist hub in St. Ann region today, the president envied achievements registered by the Caribbean country. "You have done very well in this area. We will be interested to learn how you do it," he told Jamaica tourism minister Edmund Bartlett, who accompanied him on the tour. Jamaica, which has 2.8 million inhabitants, receives some 2.6 million tourists annually mainly from the US, Canada and some European countries while Tanzania, with its abundant wildlife and other attractions, is still struggling to achieve the one million visitors mark. Officials here say their hotels have 65 per cent occupancy rate with each visitor spending an average nine days. Tanzania is talking about 53 per cent hotel occupancy while visitors stay for six to seven days. Tourism and other services account for more than 60 per cent of Jamaica's economy. President Kikwete attributed Tanzania's dismal earnings from tourism to poor infrastructure and service quality. Local tourism promoters will need to improve product branding and blend wildlife safaris and beach tourism with historical and cultural attractions. "Our hoteliers should also learn better ways of attracting and retaining visitors," he added. Earlier today, Mr kikwete, who was on the second day of his state visit here, called on the Governor-General, Sir Patrick Allen, at the King's House.
He later inspected agricultural and livestock research at Bodles Research Station in St Catherine Region, where he called for cooperation between the Jamaican station and Tanzanian research institutes. President Kikwete is tomorrow scheduled to hold bilateral talks with Prime Minister Bruce Golding and address a joint session of the Houses of Parliament. Picha na habari/Daily news
