Nigerian, UK firms partner to grow travel, hospitality sectors

Three companies—MALL Of Fame Nigeria, TLC Harmony London, and Transcorp Hilton Hotels Plc have declared their intention to support the development of the tourism and hospitality industries in Nigeria.

According to The Punch, among the other partners who have approved the upcoming Reset Summit Nigeria/UK are former officials of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation and the Abuja Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Taleb Rifai.

The founder of TLC Harmony UK, Nicki Page, referred to Nigeria as a destination and a pioneer in the tourism, travel, and creative industries during her speech at the event.

She emphasized that any unwillingness to participate would result in economic loss for the country and that Nigeria had the capacity and amazing prospects to lead the industry.

Page stated that participants in the deal chose Nigeria as a destination center to link and reset the industries because the tourism and hospitality sectors made up 10% of the global Gross Domestic Product.

“We believe that Africa, including Nigeria, has the ability to lead the creative industry because, otherwise, we risk facing a serious crisis that we have already begun experiencing.

She said that Nigeria has the chance and natural resources to change the world and spur economic growth in business. “I believe that if we combine our efforts, we can make a change that will be clearly and economically validated,” Page stated.

According to the founder of Mall of Fame Nigeria,  Joseph Komolafe, the summit’s goal is to create business change that has substantial effects on nature, people, and the environment in Africa, particularly in Nigeria.

According to Komolafe, the summit would support outputs that would guarantee that significant policy and action-oriented proposals would be created in compliance with international standards.

Nigeria required a reset in the tourist sector given its wealth of potential, according to the Head of the Secretariat, Afro-Carribean Chamber of Culture and tourism, Oba Olasunmakanmi.
