Zanzibar courts tourists from Southeast Asia
Zanzibar is courting Indonesian businesses to invest in the island’s tourism industry.
Zanzibar President Ali Mohammed Shein said his government aims to attract 500,000 tourists annually by 2020 from Indonesia and other southeast Asian states.
President Shein visited Indonesia and invited investors to venture into seaweed cultivation, which accounts for about 24,000 jobs in Zanzibar.
Zanzibar is the world’s third-largest producer of seaweed, after Indonesia and the Philippines.
He said there is a plan to develop a marine-based economy based on the island’s rich Indian ocean resources.
The president said that his government is open to investors who can make the Isles into a business hub in East Africa.
