New tourism minister appointed


According to local media, a new tourism minister has indeed been appointed although the president’s office has yet to break the story.
The new minister of tourism is going to be Dr. Mariyam Zulfa who holds a Phd from Curtin University of Technology on Business/Tourism , 2005 — 2009 according to linkedin.com site. The tourism ministry’s site is as usual non-committal about issues like this and its very unlikely that the site will even bother to put a page for the minister. Despite the allegations of nepotism (ie being alleged that the new minister is niece of the president’s press secretary ) We congratulate the minister and wish her and the industry success.

  1. For tourism industry the best would be to have some who had practically worked at resorts, there are people who started as a receptionist and now holds Masters. I consider these Master holders more appropriate for the job than a RAW PhD holder.
