He also hailed the private sector for playing an important role in the implementation of strategies by the Tourism ministry in the Coast.

Boinett said that they still work to do in order for Coast region to get to is full potential in regard to tourism citing several factors among them insecurity in some parts of the Coast such as Lamu.

Dr Betty Radier, the Kenya Tourism Board (KTB) CEO added that the Kenya Coast Tourism brand will help in showcasing the country’s diversity.

“When people think about the Kenyan coast in terms of tourism, the first thing that comes to mind is the beach. But the Coast is much more than this, it is about fantastic cuisine to suit all, culture, history, art, good weather and fantastic hospitality. This is what we want people to see when they make their choice for travel,” added Radier according to the Star.
