Zimbabwe managed to revive tourism in spite of COVID-19 setback – Minister Tourism


Harare, March 23, 2022 Investments in Zimbabwe’s tourism sector grew from 86 million U.S. dollars in 2020 to 142 million dollars in 2021, boosted by a raft of government investment promotion measures.
Tourism was adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic over the past two years, resulting in the loss of 9,000 jobs and closure of 37 facilities, Information Minister Monica Mutsvangwa said.
However, there has been notable progress in reviving the sector.
The government has implemented a recovery and growth strategy launched in 2020, seeking to grow the tourism industry to 5 billion U.S. dollars by 2025.
Several strategies to revive the sector include campaigns to boost domestic tourism, increase investments in new and existing facilities and increase the accessibility of the country through air transport.
