  • Painted huts offer Congo Kinshasa village a tourism lifeline

    CONGO KINSHASA, 2017/07/01 There’s no electricity and only 500 residents in the Congolese village of Makwatsha, but a longstanding tradition by its womenfolk has turned it almost by accident into a star attraction for Chinese tourists. The outside walls of the huts are decorated with paintings of local life, flowers and butterflies, making “the village of the women painters” a draw as well for tourists from France and Belgium. “For the colour, we use only the earth,” says Prosperine Mwelma, 60, dressed in a bright blue and yellow wrap and holding a paint brush.

    PERU, 2017/07/01 An effort to fasten new aviation deals and invest in marketing campaigns seems to be paying off for Peru’s tourism sector, with sizeable increase in gain and foreign arrivals recorded. In mid-May the Lima Chamber of Commerce (Cámara de Comercio de Lima, CCL) reported that revenues from tourism in Peru rose by 3.9% to $4.3bn last time– of which $3.5bn was from goods and services, and $802m was from transport services. The rising revenue stream, marking a fourth consecutive year of increase, was driven by a higher volume of foreign tourists, which climbed 8.4% in 2016 to reach 4.6m, a trend that looks set to continue.
