From Daily News, Dar es Salaam

MWANZA Tourism Task Force (MTTF) envisages attracting at least 25,000 leisure and conference tourists, earning the lakeside city and the lake zone region as a whole about 3.5 million US dollars (about 5bn/-) annually in the next five years.

The initiatives are part of the task force efforts to put the City and the Lake Zone in general to the map of tourism that has been dormant for years despite its abundant attractions.

MTTF Coordinator Mary Kalikawe told reporters in Dar es Salaam today that the Lake Zone has been blessed with abundant resources that could contribute a lot in the national economy only if tourism infrastructures were improved.

Already, some investors have shown interests to construct about 88 tourism hotels in the popular rocky city and the nearby areas. The investors, said the coordinator, will be connected to the rest of the attraction in other regions of the Lake Zone.
