Botswana tourism policy workshop
A workshop to discuss the Botswana Department of Tourism's work on a tourism policy for Botswana was held in Maun on May 22nd. The workshop, Tourism Policy For Botswana: Key Issues Affecting Botswana's Tourism Competitiveness was sponsored by the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) and Government of Botswana to allow discussion of a consultants' issue paper compiled from interviews with key stakeholders. The objective of the project is to review the Tourism Policy formulated in 1990, taking into consideration recent changes, challenges, competitive situation and future development trends within the local and international tourism industry, with a view to proposing a new policy framework to guide future plans, development and management of the sector in Botswana. You can find the 1990 policy in HOORC's Library.
