Tourism minister Walter Mzembi has officially filed his nomination papers for the position of secretary-general of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO).
Mzembi had been endorsed by the African Union despite a late bid by the Seychelles’s Alain St Ange. In a statement yesterday, Mzembi said the key elements of his plan include administrative and governance reform of the organisation, responsible tourism and sustainability, and resource mobilisation.
