NTDC, NDDC partnership seek to exploit technology for tourism development



The Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC) has announced a partnership with the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) with the aim to adapt and deploy technology in the development of tourism potentials across the country.

The Assistant Director, Press Unit of NTDC, Mrs Adamma Afanga disclosed this in a statement on Friday in Abuja, saying “We are in the digital era; Nigeria has to explore all the tourism benefits through adaptation and deploying the best technology along the tourism value chain”.
She said the NTDC-NDDC partnership will ensure a quick intervention on some tourism assets in the South-South region.

“It was necessary to redefine the tourism sector by giving it a brand identity that is easy to sell in order to stimulate economic growth as well as re-positioning the Nigerian Tourism Industry.

“There is need to redefine the tourism sector in Nigeria; we need to start within our domain, focusing on consumption of our assets, promotion and development of domestic tourism.”

Mrs. Afanga further disclosed that redefining the tourism industry would have multiple effects on job creation, poverty alleviation, as well as strengthen the nation’s GDP and currency.

The NTDC Director called on investors to promote domestic tourism in the country, describing Nigeria as a tourism market with a vibrant and dynamic business environment.

“One of our strategic imperatives is to bring all stakeholders under one umbrella to sell a single all inclusive tour packages for Nigerians.

“We need to package tourism in a simple manner that the average Nigerian can use, if we don’t package it well, individuals cannot take advantage of it.

She also reiterated the commitment of the corporation to promote tourism potentials, which would further enhance the nation’s economy.
