Youth in Tourism say they are keen to increase their footprint in the sector and unlock more funding for projects that they intend to undertake.

National chairman at Zimbabwe Youth in Tourism Mr Stewart Mutizwa says they have a huge role to play in the growth of the sector, which is one of the country’s strongest economic sectors with nearly US$900 million recorded in international inbound tourist receipts last year.

The Youth in Tourism say they will host the Africa Youth in Tourism conference   in Bulawayo later this year to share ideas on how to unlock more opportunities in the tourism sector.

The Youth in Tourism conference will be held under the theme, ‘The Whole of Youth for Sustainable Tourism’.
