A few days after calling them backwards, the Zambian government has now engaged a South African Based Conference Organising company to be in charge of the overall organising of the 20th session of the United Nations World Tourism General Assembly (UNWTO) to be co-hosted between Zambia and Zimbabwe in August this year.
Speaking during a press briefing at Royal Sun Hotel today, Minister of Tourism and Arts Ms Sylvia Masebo said government was confident that The Conference Company of South Africa would be able to competently organise the event with success.
Ms Masebo said the company will be in charge of organizing for the venue, food, accommodation, hosting of actual event as well as other side activities that would take place on the Zambian side during the global event.
