- Nigerian tourism and implications of the African Growth and Opportunity Act
- Abubakar, Binta
- This paper examines Tourism issues in Nigeria and posits that Nigeria is a potentially huge tourist destination in Africa. Tourism has been identified as a key ingredient in economic development strategy in developing nations like Nigeria. The dilemma, however, is that Nigeria has not fully exploited this sector. The paper finds that the Nigerian government and tourism board is embarking on strategy developmental ways of reviving the tourism industry. The new America initiative towards economic partnership with Africa - the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA)- has the potential to impact on the tourism industry in Nigeria in a number of positive ways, i.e. the development of primary and vocational educational system, re-introduction of international export activities including flights, technological advancement and finance services.
