To Paul Silvester. According to my opinion, a green economy, this one of futures of the humanity. I thing, if every one of us will learn to use in concept of green economy in correct form, on the base of green economy ideas will be possibled to creat very lot employment places and to resolve very many social problems and troubles. Green economy this very great idea.

Thank you Shmuel...my question to the panel, how are we making tourism beneficial to the local community development? This is very important....

A timely resource for domestic tourism growth in Africa. While the literature will go a long way, how can stakeholders/Ministers of tourism across the continent work towards encouraging Africans to travel more on the continent, and how can travel be made more seamless vis-a-vis visas and communication (air travel especially)
Shmuel Yerushalmi
01:07:27

With the restrictions in visa requirements and lack of interconnectedness with regards air travel, do you think Pan-American tourism is more feasible than encouraging tourism for individuals within a country?

Thank you to our distinguished speakers - my question is to the speakers who are in charge of tourism in Ghana, Nigeria and Sierra Leone - one question I keep getting asked in my role is about security in West Africa for domestic tourism . Our last West Africa tourism roundtable session looked at health, safety and security as a tool for destination competitiveness, and I would like to know what is being done in Ghana, Sierra Leone and Nigeria to address these challenges.

It appears that private SMEs in Sub-saharan Africa, especially Nigeria, are not receiving proper support from the national government. How can this situation be remedied to boost the productivity gains of these firms?

Absolutely -we need information management - perception management is key.
Adun Okupe
02:03:51
That said, we absolutely need to increase the perception of security across West Africa so that we can boost visitor confidence...
Tafadzwa Matiza
02:05:45
Unfortunately Africa has a very high mountain to climb. Remember Africa is perceived as one big place hence what happens in Congo influences how tourists perceive a visit to Zambia
Adun Okupe
02:05:59
Agreed @ Tafadzwa

I beg your pardon , I had some issues with my laptop, I couldn't have an intervention as an author. I am asma from Morocco, and author of a chapter related to micro-entrepreneurship in tourism sector, I would like to consider micro entrepreneurship sector as key contributor to tourism sector.
Paul-Sylvester Ajani-Makam
02:07:28
I think Nigeria should propose integration management within the tools of tourism. Serious corroboration across the frame work of tourism in the country is needed to minimise insecurity.

I beg your pardon , I had some issues with my laptop, I couldn't have an intervention as an author. I am asma from Morocco, and one of the authors of a chapter related to micro-entrepreneurship in tourism sector, I would suggest from our guest to consider micro entreprenreurs sector as key contributors to tourism sector.
