The Anambra State government through the Ministry of Diaspora Affairs, Culture and Tourism on Wednesday, hosted a stakeholder meeting with Anambra State Association of Hotel Owners in a bid to revive tourism and hospitality services in the state and beyond.
The State Commissioner for Diaspora Affairs, Culture and Tourism, Dr Sally Mbanefo, who addressed journalists shortly after the partnership parley with the hoteliers, said the administration of Governor Willie Obiano is always committed to sustaining enabling environment for investors to drive.
According to her, the event was held in response with the meeting her ministry had with five hundred (500) registered hotels in the state a few months ago in order to tackle financial issues the hotels may be facing and to help boost tourism and hospitality services in the state.
She said the Tourism Ministry under her watch, would keep working hard to make the state more investment-friendly and called on indigenous entrepreneurs especially those in the Diaspora to invest more in the state so as to create more employment opportunities for Anambra youths and to help the government generate fund for the development of the state.
She advised other relaxation centres in the state to register with the government in other to enjoy the partnership benefits.
