Salim Valá, highlights tourism as the driving force behind the development of Vilankulo in particular and Inhambane in general.
These words are from Salim Valá PCA of the BVM who spoke on the morning of this Friday (12) in a lecture at the Higher School of Rural Development of UEM in Vilankulo.
ValÃ¡n, sees tourism as the driving force behind Vilankulo's growth and development, and has urged the academic community to prepare staff with an attitude and "know-how" and to provide technical and managerial assistance in order to exploit the economic potential still dormant in the territory.
The PCA addressed the theme "Tourism, Economic Growth and Local Development in Vilankulo", noting that tourism has the incentive to induce the improvement of the functioning of various sectors and services, thus improving the well-being of the local population, meeting the social and environmental safeguards and to value local history and culture.
The speaker acknowledged that tourism could be the lever to implement a diversified local economy, enhancing improvements in agriculture, fisheries, trade, construction, agro-industry, transport and communications, mineral and energy resources, cultural and recreational industries, a regional economic development pole that can be free from hunger, poverty, unemployment and stark social inequalities.
According to the PCA, the Mozambique Stock Exchange can be a financing alternative for entrepreneurs who have viable business plans, who want to spread the risk and want to grow and develop doing business with ethics, using the stock exchange listing as a "registered trademark" and a powerful vehicle to promote savings and investment in Vilankulo, Inhambane and all of Mozambique.
