Jumia Travel has released its annual tourism industry report exploring the factors that make up the Ethiopian tourism industry. The report portrays key trends of the country’s successes and failures as well as its untapped opportunities in the industry. Although the Ethiopian tourism sector has been bolstering over the years, recent safety and security concerns have been a major setback to the country’s growing leisure and conference tourism industry. However, the sector remains resilient as the country continues working towards prioritizing security to ensure the safety of visitors and citizens, as well as to minimize the impact of security threats.
