Post-Covid: Morocco Calls for Stronger and Sustainable Tourism Industry
Speaking at the Africa Hotel Investment Forum 2021, held by videoconference, Fettah Aloui stressed that the investors who will be the first to get involved will certainly be those who will take advantage of the best opportunities, recalling the importance of the revival of the tourism industry as a guarantee of sustainability of the sector.
"This crisis is nevertheless an opportunity to rethink creatively the way we welcome tourists. We must seize the enormous competitive tourism potential that Morocco has to reinvent and create new tourism offers in all regions of the Kingdom," she said.
Since the outbreak of the health crisis, Morocco has ensured a good management of the pandemic, first by taking care of the health and safety of citizens, but also by providing great support to the economy in general and tourism in particular, recalled the minister, noting that the government has granted aid to employees of the sector as well as to companies impacted by the crisis.
"Today, we are optimistic. We are conducting a very large vaccination strategy and overall the pandemic indicators are encouraging for a return to normal life," she stressed.
