Rwanda hoteliers seek wisdom from Mombasa counterparts

Wolfgang H. Thome, eTN  May 15, 2011

(eTN) - The hotel and restaurant association of Rwanda has just embarked on a fact-finding mission by at least 30 members to Mombasa, where they expect to meet and interact with their counterparts running beach resorts along the sunny beaches of Kenya’s coastline. According to information presently available, they may also meet colleagues in other parts of Kenya including Nairobi.

High on the agenda will be matters concerning staff training, marketing, and operational issues, and the Rwandan delegation is expected to also meet with officials of the Kenya Association of Hotelkeepers and Caterers to also talk about institutional cooperation in the future.

The group was seen off after a cocktail function held by the association during which notably the head of tourism and conservation at the Rwanda Development Board Ms. Rica Rwigamba urged the hoteliers to improve standards and ensure that Rwandan hotels, resorts, and safari lodges are of equal standards as those in the East African Community member states.
