Gov’t Working To Revive Tourism Sector From Covid-19 Shocks

The government will work with all partners in the tourism sector to bring in measures that will help the industry recover from the effects of Covid-19, said the Labour and Social Protection Chief Administrative Secretary Jackson Kalla.

Kalla said among the moves the government made included the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to suspend the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

It also ensured nobody lost a job in the course of the pandemic, came up with covid-19 protocols, provided incentives, and did skill audits in the industry, among others.

Speaking during the 18th annual symposium themed “Rebuilding Tourism” CAS Kalla said that the government has also come up with a framework of recognizing informal skills through the recognition of prior learning by the National Industrial Training Authority (NITA).

His sentiments were echoed by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Kenya Association of Hotel keepers and Caterers Mike Macharia who said the 12 per cent wage bill by the government has helped them where in 2020, they sat and signed a MoU with the unions whose aim was to protect jobs and freeze all collective bargains agreements.

Mombasa has reported a 75 per cent increase of the business with 40 to 50 per cent in upcountry.

He noted that although the industry was very much affected for the last two years, they are now back to the market and their main target is the local market.

Macharia noted that to help revive the sector, there is need for air transport capacity. He said the hoteliers have been on the record asking for the upgrade of Kisumu to be an international airport and Mombasa to be a second hub to Jomo Kenyatta for international flights to maintain clients.

Macharia asked the government to relook at the transport policy and allow more aircrafts to land in Mombasa not forgetting there is also a need to protect our space and our national carrier.
