Minister of Tourism and Arts Charles Banda says a Spanish Chamber of Commerce delegation is expected in the country on July 8th 2019 to explore areas of investment in tourism.
Speaking when Spanish Council honorary representative to Zambia Ramon Diaz Bustamante paid a courtesy call on him at his office this morning, the Minister said the team is scheduled to hold meetings with Zambia Chamber of Commerce.
He said if there would be another opportunity for more business people from Spain sponsored by the Spanish Government coming to Zambia, the country will cease the opportunity to tap into that market to grow tourism.
And Mr. Bustamante said the Spanish are very interested in growing their relationships with Zambia.
He said future plans are to bring to the high level delegation of directors from the Spanish National Parks to come and know how Zambian National Parks are run.
Mr. Bustamante said his country being one of the leading tourism source markets in the world brings to the fore a wealth of experience that could be beneficial to Zambia.
He said the exchange program will also involve the training of directors from the Department of National Parks-Zambia on best procedures used in Spain.
