11 May 2017

The Mozambican government has decided to create the Tourism Forum (Fortur), a platform to coordinate the sector’s policies as well as the regulatory framework for the implementation of the tourism industry in the country, said on Tuesday in Maputo the spokesman of the Council of Ministers.

Mouzinho Saíde also said that Fortur will be the subject of a bill to be presented to members of the Mozambican parliament, “in order to provide a platform that can respond to the challenges of the dynamics of the tourism sector.”

The ministers also approved new licensing regulations for telecommunications services, which introduce the possibility of an operator being able to provide various services based on a single license, according to Mozambican news agency AIM.

Under the current regulations, telecom operators, including radio and television broadcasters, fixed-line and mobile telephony operators, must apply for a license for each type of service to be provided. (macauhub)
