Ken Livingston - who said so while delivering a lecture on Tourism Destinations and Marketing, at the World Tourism Forum - explained that judging by its potential and geographical location, Angola has everything to be able to develop its tourism sector and become a world reference.


The former Mayor of London highlighted the public transportation problem in the cities and explained that during his mayoral mandate he managed to make collective transportation more usable than personal vehicles, which helped to decrease traffic-jams and pollution.  

He went on to highlight the importance of telecommunications and manifested his admiration at the fact Angola launched a satellite in 2017 and that others are being built.

The World Tourism Forum was opened last Thursday, in Luanda, by the Angolan Head of State, João Lourenço, who is also the patron of the event.

The event is to end on 25 May and counts on the participation of renowned international figures, such as the former French president, Francois Hollande.
