João Lourenço, in presidential order no. 53/24 of 16 February, said that the measure, framed in the promotion and development of tourism, aims to attract a significant number of international tourists to that region in the south of Angola, in the province of Cuando Cubango, which borders Namibia and Zambia.

Facilitating the mobility and access of tourists to Angola, with the creation of conditions to access the region, is also one of the purposes of the order, which formalizes the opening of the competition procedure limited by prior qualification for the purpose.

The President, in this order already published in the Diário da República and consulted this Tuesday by Lusa, delegates competence to the Minister of the Interior, with the power to sub-delegate, for the approval of the parts of the procedure, as well as for verifying the validity and legality of all acts.

The Ministry of Finance is authorized to provide the financial resources necessary for the execution of contracts, the document states.

The Okavango region, in the province of Cuando Cubango, is a tourist site with an abundance of water resources, wild fauna and flora that the Angolan Government wants to use to attract more national and foreign tourists.

The National Agency for the Management of the Angolan Okavango Region promoted, in January, the 1st investor forum for the region, which brought together investors, tour operators, economists and other actors to evaluate investment opportunities.

Access and lack of border posts are highlighted as some of the obstacles to the development of tourism in the Okavango basin in Angola, as previously told Lusa Gime Sebastião, responsible for the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (ATFC KAZA), which brings together five countries and 36 national parks, covering a total area of 520 thousand square kilometers.

Angola, with 90 thousand square meters, comprising four municipalities (Cuito Cuanavale, Dirico, Rivungo and Mavinga), holds the third largest portion of this area in the province of Cuando Cubando, one of the most extensive and remote in Angola, occupying an area twice as large from Portugal.
