The Federal government has been urged to carry out a comprehensive review of the nation’s culture and tourism policy and laws to make the sector more responsive and relevant to the needs of the country.
This is to ensure that the sector contributes largely to the nation’s economy following the dwindling oil prices in the international market.
The Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Culture and Tourism, Mr. Ben Nwankwo, stated this while speaking with Radio Nigeria in Abuja.
Mr. Nwankwo, who represents Orumba North and South Federal Constituency of Anambra State, stressed the need for the federal government to make culture and tourism a destination point for the nation’s development.
He called for the development of the nation’s vast tourism cites to attract foreign investors into the country.
Mr. Ben Nwankwo also called on the State governments to cooperate with the centre in the effort to develop the Culture and Tourism Industry to an enviable position and standard.
