Speaking in Menongue, the provincial capital of Kuando Kubango, on Tuesday, he said in 2013, the ministry had completed one of the most important tourism projects in the world — the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area, known as KAZA, situated in a region where the international borders of five countries converge.
The area includes a major part of the Upper Zambezi basin and the Okavango basin and Delta and includes the Caprivi Strip of Namibia, the southeastern corner of Angola, southwestern Zambia, the northern wildlands of Botswana and western Zimbabwe.
The centre of this area is at the confluence of the Chobe River and Zambezi River where the borders of Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe meet.
The area will incorporate notable sites such as Chobe National Park, Hwange National Park, the Okavango Delta in Botswana and the Victoria Falls.
Another highlight of the hotels and tourism sector in Angola, said the minister, was the implementation of a tourism development centre of the Okavango basin, in Kuando Kubango Province.
The minister added that in 2014, the headquarters of KAZA-AFTC would be inaugurated in the province of Cuando Cubango in Angola.
He also said that in the first quarter of 2014, the ministry will set up a facilitation committee which will be charged with creating conditions to facilitate tourism and movements of tourists.
