Before the #COVID19 virus struck, tourism was the country’s biggest foreign exchange earner raking in about $1.45bn annually of total exports.
Tourist exports amounted to US$431 million in 2019, representing 6.3%. #BankingConf22
.@psfued: The hospitality and tourism sector is a major source of employment, government revenue and foreign exchange earnings. Without vitality in this sector, the economy could experience a dramatic contraction in GDP and a rise in unemployment. #BankingConf22
.@psfued: However these tourism resources are modestly exploited and less commercialized compared to many other countries in the region or even more developed economies in Asia, Europe, or America. #BankingConf22
