DAR ES SALAAM: MINISTER for Natural Resources and Tourism, Ms Angela Kairuki, has commended the Tanzania Wildlife Management Authority (TAWA) for its solemn efforts to promote sustainable tourism.
Kairuki expressed her compliments while touring TAWA wildlife garden at the 7th edition of the Swahili International Tourism Expo (S!TE), held in Dar es-Salaam recently.
Literally, the event focused on inbound and outbound travel to and within Africa, aiming at promoting Tanzania’s tourism to international markets and also facilitating the linking of companies based in Tanzania, Eastern Africa, and Central Africa with tourism companies from other parts of the world.
“I want to thank everyone, but especially TAWA, for the wonderful and admirable work they are doing to advance conservation, maintain management of our various reserves, and promote sustainable tourism that is concerned with all conservation-related issues,” she said.
Meanwhile, Ms Kairuki handed over a certificate of appreciation to TAWA to acknowledge their role in sponsoring the S!TE exhibition and contributing to its overall success.
In her closing remarks, Minister Kairuki thanked everyone who attended and took part, but especially TAWA for showcasing wild animals, which significantly influenced and added distinctive flavors and tastes to the exhibition.
“I would like to thank you all again for taking part in these crucial exhibitions for our country, as well as in the tourism industry, business, and investment,” she noted.
Adding: “I should also give TAWA more credits for bringing the wildlife animals, and I do believe the wildlife garden was enjoyable for those who were able to attend the TAWA pavilions.”
Additionally, Minister Kairuki has once again extended an invitation to all participants in S!TE 2024, which is scheduled for October 11–13, next year.
The exhibition has the character of a business networking event for the tourism industry, with components of a social dimension to attract local people, families, and experts over the weekend.
