15 August 2013

The Mozambican government has set up the Crusse and Jamali Integrated Tourism Resort located in Matibane, in the Mossuril district of Nampula province, northern Mozambique, with an area of 1,750 hectares, the Maputo press reported Thursday.

Crusse and Jamali are uninhabited islands with high quality beaches.

Speaking at the end of a council of ministers meeting government spokesman Alberto Nkutumula said that setting up this area was intended to help create development hubs in areas with potential for integrated projects, particularly in the hotel and tourism industry.

Nkutumula noted that the new area would be opened up to construction and operation of luxury hotel units, development of residential tourism and new tourist facilities, such as marinas, casinos and golf courses.

“We want to transform the Nacala, Mossuril, Matibane, Crusse and Jamali area into one of the world’s most attractive luxury tourism areas,” he said. (macauhub)
