Infotur: rural tourism plays a crucial role in economic growth

Rural tourism may be one of the answers to boost economic growth. According to Afonso Vita, director-general of the National Institute for Tourism Promotion, this type of tourism can be conceived on a small scale in the country, having the potential to become a powerful tool to fight hunger and poverty.

The local activities and products and crafts that ensure the community's income are linked to rural tourism, he explained.

He also defended that the promotion of rural tourism does not need ambitious investments and, in an interview to Angop, indicated that the growth of tourism activities is important to try to boost the economy of small rural infrastructures and improve the living conditions of the population.

"One of the great advantages of rural tourism is the insertion of the informal sector in the system of contributing to the economic growth of the country, increasing, in a certain way, the thought of integration, keeping away the marginalization of layers of the population in the life of society", he said.

The official also considered that tourism routes should be established for rural tourism, with a view to favoring small traders, farmers, handicraft producers, among others.

"We have a country blessed by God, and from Cabinda to Cunene, we have rare and beautiful natural landscapes. But there has to be a synchronization between the various operators", he highlighted.

To Angop he also said that the Government should generate basic conditions in what concerns infrastructures and access routes.

"Angola has clear opportunities for growth, especially with regard to the natural resources available and associated with a conscious and appropriate exploitation of them," he considered.
