The Malawi Tourism Council (MTC) has announced that it will hold its annual general meeting (AGM) next month on June 2, 2017 to strategize and map the way forward for the country’s tourism industry.
The indaba follows recommendations from the National Tourism Conference (NTC) that took place on the sixth last month, according to MTC Membership Services and Communications Officer, Dennis Imaan.
Nyasa Times understands that operations of the Council have been moving at a snail’s pace since the death of its executive director Rosebill Satha.
In the absence of the executive director, nevertheless, the board took over the responsibility of running the secretariat.
“[During the AGM] a new executive committee of the Board to lead the Council forward will be done and together we will review our work for 2016 and plan for the future in line with our strategic plan,” reads a communication from MTC Board chairperson, Florentine Kabefu, addressed to all members.
Basically, MTC provides strategic direction, policies and leadership on key issues and opportunities for the tourism industry and advocates policies to Government and other stakeholders as the united voice of the industry.
MTC represents the interests of the private players in the tourism sector and is the recognized umbrella industry body with the Malawi Government.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
