“We are very excited as ZTA with such activity, with such confidence within the market towards our destination it means there is something that we are doing right, there is something that is happening in the country, it means that there is something worth the attention that we are getting from outside and Asia, in particular, is a market we look at as an emerging market.
“It’s a market we want to grow as much as we can and so we would like to welcome the Japanese and also thank the travel agencies that have made this particular arrangement to come to life, the Zimbabwean ones as well as the Japanese that have brought the team that has come to visit Zimbabwe,” Chief Koti said.
The veteran broadcaster and marketer added that the ZTA was spreading its tentacles to European, American, Australian and Asian and the efforts were bearing fruit as seen by the recent visit and intention to invest in the sector by the Japanese.
“We do hope that as they leave they will also be preaching the gospel of a beautiful destination called Zimbabwe. So we are very excited as a country we are very honoured and we look forward to the growth of the market through these kinds of initiatives and of course, if they go back they will obviously sell the country as much as they can to their market.
“So we are ready for the Japanese market though we would like to improve here and there but we are overly excited that they have seen it fit to come to Zimbabwe and explore this destination and all the things that it has to offer, it is indeed a world of wonders they will be quite amazed and impressed,” Chief Koti added.
