Uganda Tourism Board, together with tourism sector players led by the Ministry Tourism, Wildlife, and Antiquities and representatives from Entebbe Municipal council, have convened at Wildlife Conservation Education Center (UWEC) for the launch of the standard operating procedures for the tourism sector.
The guidelines represent the significance of rebuilding the confidence of the guests and tourists through health and safety protocols designed to reduce risks in each step of the tourism value chain to enhance harmonized and uniform protocols for all tourism enterprises.
According to the Minister of Tourism Hon. Tom Butime, the choice of the launch venue at the UWEC in Entebbe, was carefully considered to signal a reopening of Tourism across the Nation.
Ensure the health and safety of our guests and staff, rebuild trust and confidence with guests and make a trip around the Centre memorable.
The operating procedures come in response to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, that have impacted greatly on the Tourism sector.
The government through Ministry Tourism, Wildlife, and Antiquities has developed a business continuity and sustainability plan with special attention to health and safety, financial recovery, and enhanced destination marketing.
