Tourism and Art Minister Charles Banda says his ministry is ready to partner with the Galilee International Management Institute of Israel.
Mr. Banda said his ministry plans to partner with the Galilee International Management Institute in a training programme that would help grown the tourism sector.
This comes after President Edgar Lungu’s recent visit to Israel country.
Mr. Banda said the coming of the President of the Galilee International Management Institute Joseph Shevel to Zambia is a commitment of the partnership between the institute and the Ministry.
He said the visiting head of the institute wants cooperation between the Minister and his institute so that people can be equipped with the knowhow of doing things.
Dr. Shevel said his university would wave tuition for students that will come from development countries like Zambia.
He said the kind of training offered will definitely show the tourism growth effects in a space of three years.
And Mr Banda noted that there is need for training if the tourism growth agenda is to be driven well.
He added that the more tourists the country receives, the more revenue would be collected adding that the Ministry is ready to send a delegation for the training in May once all the logistics are put in place.
