Modern landmarks include the concrete zigzag La Pyramide and St. Paul’s Cathedral, a nosedive attached to a massive cross. North of the central business district, Banco National Park is a rainforest reserve with hiking trails.
Ivory Coast (also: Ivory Coast) is a country in West Africa with a south-facing North Atlantic coast.
It borders Ghana to the east, Liberia to the west, Guinea to the northwest, Mali to the north and Burkina Faso to the northeast.
Meetings with the honorable Minister of Tourism Siandou Fofana were confirmed for the chairman Ncube.
The Ivory Coast has great potential for both ecotourism and sports tourism.
Minerals in Ivory Coast are still untapped. Mr. Cuthbert believed that there are not only excellent investment opportunities for tourism projects.
Mr. Cuthbert encouraged tourism stakeholders to engage with and promote the domestic tourism market in order to prepare for an international restart of the sector.
He said, “It will require full synergy with everyone involved in the tourism value chain to make tourism accessible and affordable for the local population.”
