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.

This is contained in a statement released to ZANIS in Lusaka today by Ministry of Tourism and Arts Public Relations Officer Sakabilo Kalembwe.

  1. “President Lungu’s visit to Israel benefits the tourism sector…”

    Yes, the ISRAELI tourism sector! They made thousands of dollars out of the poor Zambian Taxpayers.

    What has Zambia got in return? A dull clown being a world tourist at public expense instead of doing the job he is being PAID FOR!

  2. Can the pf chaps explain the video circulating of two pf cadres busy poking each other in the matak0. They are dressed in pf regalia. Am sure that is ndanje kikiki he has been posting about wanting gays to be recognised and his gay partner. Dirty chaps

  3. You people are sick. Everything is political. No wonder everyone seeking state house looks forward to loot instead of service delivery. You people must change your way of thinking, you are not being productive at all.

  4. We celebrate prematurely.
    How much have we made in terms of dollars
    It is too early to judge.
    Money wont come from anywhere, it will be created by Zambians if the President empowers them and stops the corruption in the Government.
