Uganda to host 4th tourism expo

Tourism has emerged the highest foreign exchange earner for the country, contributing about $1.4b to the country’s gross domestic product.

Because of this, the sector has become a priority area to the Government, thus taking several interventions to boost the sector.

One of them is the annual Pearl of Africa Tourism Expo organised by the Uganda Tourism Board (UTB) to market the various tourism potentials/products both locally and internationally.

This year’s event will take place from February 23 to 25 under the theme “Re-discovering the Pearl” at Sheraton Gardens in Kampala.

The event is supported by the tourism ministry, Kampala Capital City Authority, Uganda Wildlife Authority and the Uganda Education Wildlife Centre.
