Liberia’s Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism, Eugene Nagbe says tourism is gradually becoming a leading booster in several economies around the globe with the most beautiful untouched destinations in developing countries like Liberia.
According to him, though Liberia is yet to experience a revolution in its tourism industry, there are several key strides that have been made in the industry.
This comment was contained in a special statement read by the Assistant Information Minister for Culture, Joyce Kenkpen, at the celebration of the 38th Anniversary of the United Nations World Tourism (UNWTO) Day held on the historic Providence Island in Monrovia.
“Not only do we have the natural touristic destinations that are now ready and available for tourists, the ministry has designed an export strategy on tourism in which we have indentified priority areas,” Nagbe stated.
He said Liberia is a home to some of the world’s most endangered species and has an impressive portion of its rainforest intact.
Nagbe indicated that Liberians can boast of Nimba County’s natural reserved and the Sapo National Park, among others, adding that the importance of sustaining the ecosystem cannot be overemphasized.
“I want to take this time to congratulate our tourism businesses that are Eco- friendly and empowering destination communities to sustain tourism in Liberia as well as protecting our wildlife,” he added.
Nagbe noted that it is important for Liberians to attach serious concern to the image they paint of their country to others as people will look forward to coming to Liberia if they are told of good things that are taking place in the country or what they want to see.
He registered the government’s reassurance to continue working with every stakeholder in developing and sustaining tourism.
