Domestic tourism in Morocco expands
Domestic tourism in Morocco advanced by 11 percent in the first four months of 2004, compared to 9 percent in the same period last year, indicated Moroccan tourism, handicraft and social economy Minister.
According to MAP, Adil Douiri stressed the need to focus on interior tourism. To this aim, he said, the government decided to draw up a comprehensive plan to foster this sector and make it profit to all social categories.
He explained that the plan, to be carried out in third phases, includes “emergency measures” to stimulate domestic tourism through promotional offers such as the operation “Kounouz Biladi” launched in the fall 2004 and which included reductions up to 50 percent in hotels. (menareport.com)
