Tourism is expected to create 5000 jobs this year. The goal is to reach 50 thousand within the next four years

The tourism sector is expected to create 5000 jobs this year, within the scope of the National Tourism Promotion Plan (Planatur). However, according to the aforementioned plan, the number of jobs in this field will grow annually, with forecasts pointing to reaching 50 thousand jobs within the next four years.


The Planatur, approved at the end of last year by the Economic Commission of the Council of Ministers, aims, among other things, to guarantee large-scale direct investment, as well as the development of infrastructure and public services. In this sense, with the implementation of these measures, the Government predicts that the tourism sector will allow the generation of 50 thousand jobs between 2024-2027.

To reach this goal, the plan envisages the creation of jobs gradually over the next four years. According to the newspaper Opaís, this growth will begin this year, with the forecast pointing to the creation of 5000 jobs.

Forecasts for next year point to the number of jobs rising to 15 thousand. Meanwhile, for 2026 and 2027 the forecast is that the tourism sector will employ 30 thousand people and 50 thousand people, respectively.

According to information from the PRODESI Intersectoral Commission, about the "Study of the Value Chain of the Tourism Sector in Angola", which was launched in July 2020, at this time the country had around 31 thousand workers in this sector. Of this total, more than half (74 percent) was distributed across Luanda (62 percent), Benguela (six percent) and Huíla (six percent), writes the newspaper Opaís.

With financing of 2,489,980,000,000.007 kwanzas, Planatur also has funds planned to pave roads that give access to the poles, as well as investments in tourist sites in Angola, which will initially be carried out in the provinces of Benguela, Cuando Cubango , Cuanza Norte, Huíla, Luanda, Malanje, Namibe and Zaire.
