Tanzania: Ttb, Embassy Sign Postcards to Promote Tz Tourism in China

TANZANIA Tourist Board (TTB) and Embassy of China in Tanzania have signed the postcards that will be used to promote Tanzanian tourism in China.

TTB Chairman, Justice Thomas Mihayo said the aim of using the postcards was to symbolise love and kindness of the Chinese people, when they could not travel abroad due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

“I would like to commend the Tanzanian embassy in China for their ongoing efforts to use various methods to promote Tanzanian tourism,” he said.

The chairman further said that after the postcards have been signed in Tanzania, they will be distributed to 4000 customers of the respective companies before 11 February 2021 in the Chinese New Year period.

Justice Mihayo also commends the efforts made by the tourism board to promote tourism locally and abroad to achieve the goal set by the President John Magufuli to increase the number of tourists to 5 million by 2025.

He also said the act of using the postcards on Mount Kilimanjaro will give Chinese hope that their New Year will be a blessing and be able to travel to abroad after the last year confinement.

Cultural Counsellor from Embassy of China in Tanzania, Mr Wang Siping, who was on behalf of Ambassador Wang Ke, said they hope through the project, TTB will continue supporting and helping Chinese tourism companies in building tourism industry in Tanzania and also continue offering high quality services to Chinese tourists for the unique beauty of Tanzania.
