According to the agency's Chairman of the Board of Directors (PCA), Rui Lisboa, investors showed particular interest in investing in the Bico de Angola area, which currently has the highest concentration of wildlife.
In a statement sent to VerAngola, the PCA said that this is the main tourist asset in the region, which also benefits from its location close to the borders with Zambia and Namibia, allowing Angola to be included in the cross-border tourist itinerary of the Okavango Zambeze regional initiative and thus attracting international tourists traveling in the region, considered a world reference destination.
The proposals were submitted to the bodies that have the responsibility of approving and assigning concessions for the implementation of tourism projects in the Okavango region, and the agency is responsible for facilitating implementation in conjunction with all public institutions, which directly or indirectly intervene in the process.
However, despite this interest from national and foreign investors, the person in charge of ANAGERO emphasized the need for public investments to improve access, construction of infrastructures and installation of basic services, to make these investments feasible.
To this end, the agency has already submitted a proposal for a phased infrastructure program to start tourism in the Okavango region. Priority is given to the construction of the Bico de Angola and Bwabwata border posts, the embankment of the cross-border tourist itinerary, which links the main areas of tourist interest in Bwabwata, Luiana Sede, Boa Fé and Bico de Angola and the rehabilitation of the Luiana Sede Trail. .
