Tourist arrivals to Ethiopia on the rise: Ministry

(EBC; Aug 8, 2018) - The number of foreign tourists that come to Ethiopia has been increasing from day to day, according to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

Culture and Tourism Minister Fozia Amin said that the number of tourists that visit Ethiopia has been increasing owing to the ongoing reform in the country.

“By its nature, tourism needs peace and stability more than any other industry. And the relative peace that has been ensured in the country within the past few months has contributed to the rise in tourist arrivals,” the minister noted. 

The minister called on citizens to collaborate with the security forces in maintaining and furthering the existing peace in the country.

“We need to safeguard our peace by using our cultural conflict resolution mechanisms”, Fozia said.
