Zimbabwe/Tourism - 2002-02-16


Independent tourism operators say the violent invasion of commercial farms in Zimbabwe has led to nearly a fifty percent drop in the number of foreign tourists. But reports from the state-controlled Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation say the tourism rate improved over the holidays. Other government media say false or exaggerated reports about violence in Zimbabwe in the independent media are keeping tourists away. The government is giving tax breaks and other forms of support to support the tourist industry.
