According to the general director of Gotaze, Ana Marta, the platform will allow operators to have several useful tools available for managing their services.

"The platform will be able to provide tourists with information about services ranging from accommodation, accommodation of all types, travel by plane, bus or train, tourist packages, car rental, events and other activities, tourist tours, travel agencies", explained to Lusa the person responsible for this Angolan company created in 2019, in Luanda.

The person in charge stressed that there are currently ten permanent operators, with an increase expected from this Thursday, the date of the official launch of the project, whose initial investment was estimated at half a million euros.

Ana Marta said that this is the first platform of its kind in the country and that its main objective is to boost tourism in Angola and Africa.

Membership for operators is free and the platform will be monetized by charging a fee for the service of operators, she said.

For Ana Marta, the launch of the Gotaze platform at this time "is totally propitious" and could increase the visibility of these services on a global level.

Ana Marta argued that the platform can be accessed anywhere in the world, providing information about the various services and making purchases remotely.

"Because we have the reference payment system for nationals, in real time, and the Visa payment system for international customers and we intend to increase this range of diversity of services", she said, adding that the platform has a 'call center' aimed at clarify all issues related to the tourism sector.

The number of tourist services in Angola is already considerable, highlighted Ana Marta, highlighting the growing trend of this type of platform that allows the operator to give visibility to the business and transmit information about these services to tourists, focusing exclusively on providing services from their activity.

Ana Marta said that the provinces of Luanda, Benguela, Huíla and Namibe stand out in terms of offering services, with challenges still facing the remaining regions of the country.

"It's a very small number, there is some weakness in terms of human capital, structures for the formation of human capital and it ends up being a vicious cycle", she highlighted.
