Tourism CS Balala says industry hit by Kshs.80B loss over COVID-19 pandemic


Tourism CS Najib Balala says the industry has lost 80 billion shillings in revenue, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking at the launch of the steering committee report, Balala challenged players in the sector to relook at their business strategies going forward, and also focus more on domestic tourists post Covid-19.

Balala has also said the 3 billion shillings package the government announced early this month to cushion the sector, and mostly for renovation of facilities, is not enough for sector players to survive post covid-19.
