Zambia and France on Monday agreed to explore various areas of collaboration for mutual benefit of the tourism industries of the two countries.

Zambia’s Ambassador to France Christine Kaseba-Sata, and Laloux Clement, Head of the Tourism Promotion Department of the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, made the commitment during talks.

The Zambian envoy said the government was exploring ways of collaborating with various local and international stakeholders for the country to achieve its tourism aspirations and realize the sector’s potential, according to a release.

Zambia, she said, had so much tourism potential which could make meaningful contributions to the overall development of the country.

She called for the strengthening of bilateral ties between the two countries, adding that Zambia has a lot to learn from the way France has developed its tourism industry.

“Although Zambia is well known to international travelers because of the Victoria Falls and wildlife, the country has more to offer and these undiscovered tourism products are found in many parts of the country,” she said.

On his part, the French government official said his government was more than willing to support Zambia in achieving its aspirations in developing the tourism sector. Enditem
