‘Local for Local’ is an initiative launched by an Ethiopia tour operator named Balehageru Tours and Travels Ethiopia. The initiative is aimed at boosting the country’s domestic tourism. As a starter, the company organized a trip to Debrezeit town last weekend. The event brought together tourism stakeholders and people drawn from different parts of the society. General Manager, Ethiopia tour operator, Ato Teshome Ayele stresses that Ethiopians should enjoy and take pride in their tourism assets.  The ‘Local for Local’ initiative encourages Ethiopians to commit themselves to the novel undertaking of discovering the country’s attractions through small savings.  Though Ethiopia is endowed with diverse tourism assets, the country’s domestic tourism is still at its infancy. The Ministry of Culture and Tourism and other stakeholders are seeking to inculcate the culture of tourism among the public. (Afro FM)
