Democratic Republic of Congo Tourism Minister Calls on UNWTO Chief


The newly appointed Minister of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), His Excellency Didier Mazenga Mukanzu, recently visited the World Tourism Organization’s (UNWTO) headquarters in Madrid, Spain, with his team.

Having taken on his ministerial role just two months ago, His Excellency Mr. Mukanzu affirmed the DRC’s continued relationship with the Madrid-based United Nations Tourism Agency to Secretary-General Zurab Pololikashvili.

During the visit, Minister Mazenga and his team also had the opportunity to learn about the diverse services offered by UNWTO. They received insights into technical cooperation, sustainable development, tourism marketing, and the Best Tourism Village initiative. They were also informed about the institutional structure and the various organs within the UNWTO.

Currently, the DRC holds the position of second vice chair of the Commission for Africa (CAF) within the organization’s structure. Minister Mazenga, a respected member of Felix Tschizekedi’s government, has previously served as the minister of regional integration and francophonie.

A productive meeting took place between Minister Didier Mazenga Mukanzu and the Secretary General of UNWTO. Mr. Pololikashvili expressed his keenness to further progress the UNWTO’s Agenda for Africa, stating, “Together we make tourism work for people and the environment in the DRC.”

The DRC has been a member of the UNWTO since 1975.
