Kenya's Minister of Tourism Najib Balala met first with tour operators, then representatives of businessmen and associations and finally journalists, in a morning that saw him dispense optimism and "teamwork" to relaunch Italian tourism, before leaving for Germany where he will do the same with the Germans.
"But you Italians are special," said Balala, "you are the third most visited country in terms of tourism, after Great Britain and the United States.
We will work to further improve relations, investments and Italian presences in Kenya".
Balala cited the Malindi International Airport as a priority: "One or two years at the most for its construction," reiterating that work on the asphalting of the road to Tsavo will begin in June.
Other events and promotional campaigns on Italian soil by the Kenya Tourist Board are also on the way, as confirmed by the new director Jacinta Nzioka. We, too, illustrated to the KTB leadership and the Minister our plans to promote Malindi, Watamu and Mambrui and try to create 'conscious tourism'.
