(Business in Cameroon) - The Cameroonian government is getting ready to launch a public higher education institute specializing in tourism and hospitality. "We got the approval from the President of the Republic 2 or 3 years ago to build a higher school for training in tourism, hospitality, and recreation. The project is well underway, and its inauguration is scheduled in a few months," Bello Bouba Maïgari, the Minister of Tourism and Recreation, said during the New Year's wishes ceremony in his ministry on January 12.

Although no further details were given, the official indicated that the new center would be located in Bertoua, the regional capital of the East. He also emphasized that the government will place particular focus on the quality of services and the proper maintenance of hotel and leisure facilities in 2024. The objective is to achieve the goals set in the National Development Strategy (SND30).

The institution aims to provide advanced training in tourism and hospitality, producing qualified personnel crucial for the government's vision of positioning Cameroon as a leading tourist destination in Africa. Currently welcoming at least one million tourists annually, Cameroon aspires to reach 3.5 million tourists per year by 2030.
