Cabo Verde has signed three agreements in the areas of air transport and tourism with Angola, Portugal and the Republic of Congo, on the sidelines of a ministerial conference on tourism and air transport in Africa, which ends on Friday in Santa Maria, on the Cape Verdean island of Sal.
The Memorandum of Understanding with Angola, through the Minister of Tourism, Ângela Bragança, aims to strengthen cooperation in the field of tourism and develop actions to create business opportunities in this area and jointly explore the tourism potential of each State.
The document signed by the Ministry of Tourism and Transport of Cabo Verde and the Portuguese Economy Ministry, signed by the Cape Verdean Minister José Gonçalves and the Portuguese Secretary of State for Tourism, Ana Godinho, recognises the opportunity to internationalise the “Revive Programme” and extend the concept to Cabo Verde through the implementation of a similar programme.
The “Revive Programme” is intended to promote and streamline the processes of profitability and preservation of public assets that are vacant, by opening up these public assets to private investment for the development of tourism projects.
With the Republic of Congo, the protocol that was signed by Minister José Gonçalves and his Congolese counterpart Fidel Dimou aims to promote the development of air transport between the two countries and beyond the respective territories and ensure the safety of international air transport.
