A seminar on the appropriation of the CAF inspection guide took place in Yaounde yesterday January 10, 2018.
Ahead of the Total Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon, the different sectors concerned with the organisation are working hard to meet the exigencies of the African Football Confederation (CAF). The tourism sector is not left out. It is for this reason that a seminar on the appropriation of the CAF inspection guide took place in Yaounde yesterday January 10, 2018.
Organised by the Ministry of Tourism and Leisure, the workshop brought together managers of hotels and other infrastructure in the tourism sector from across the country.
Speaking at the opening, the Minister of Tourism and Leisure, Bello Bouba Maigari called on the participants to benefit from the workshop in order to convince the CAF inspection team during the visit to their respective structures. He said government remains a major partner and will continue to work with them in order to meet set objectives.
The objective of the workshop was to sensitise hotel managers on how to give convincing answers to questions from CAF inspectors and to ensure that everything is ready and in conformity with the expectations and prescriptions of CAF.
Participants took turns to present their projects highlighting the major aspects, objectives, and the level of preparedness. The General Manager of Mountain Hotel Buea said the hotel is more than ready given that it has been operating since the 2016 Total Women’s AFCON.
She said the administration is working hard to ensure that the delegations are received in good condition. Kaloupe, the General Manager of Groupe Kaloupe in Garoua said work is going on at about 55 per cent and he is sure that Garoua will be ready by September 30, 2018.
