Core Values

  • Professionalism
  • Shared vision
  • Accountability
  • Team work
  • National Pride Leadership


The Ministry of Tourism and Hospital Industry was created in 2009 after the country’s leadership realised the importance of tourism to the development of the country’s economy. Prior to this, Tourism was housed in several Ministries such as;

  • Environment and Tourism
  • Information, Immigration and Tourism
  • Natural Resources and Tourism
  • Mines, Environment and Tourism


The creation of a stand-alone Ministry of Tourism and Hospitality Industry is a manifestation of the country’s leadership to ensure a synergistic relationship between government and the private sector.

The Permanent Secretary supported by Management Staff in the Directorates of Domestic Tourism, International Tourism, Research and Development, and Finance, Administration and Human Resources leads the Ministry.
