Construction of the future Tourist Institute of Angola, an institution dedicated to the training of staff for the tourism sector, will begin this year in the city of Luena, eastern Moxico province, said Monday the provincial director of Hospitality and Tourism.
Lutete Mariz told Angolan news agency Angop that the foundation stone of the institute, which is expected to have 60 classrooms and other facilities, is expected to be laid in the second half of the year.
