Madagascar: Two hotel schools to strengthen the tourism sector in the island




Eric Koller president of the Board of Directors of the National Agency of tourism of Madagascar (ONTM) recently mentioned the insufficient number of home staff (servers and seconds in kitchen) in the wake of a hospitality training and restoration that could be greatly improved in the island.
 
The stakeholders of the sector are working on a skill development with a Government policy that will be permanently acted in July next.

“The implementation of this strategy will lead to the competitiveness of this Malagasy destination by offering a quality of service at the level of the customers’ needs and aims the professionalisation of the sector by providing a global framework for all stakeholders to intervene,” has thus precised the new Minister of tourism of Madagascar, Benjamina Ramarcel Raghavendra.
 
Two schools of hotel training should thus emerge on the side of Fianarantsoa in southeastern Madagascar in partnership with Saint. Francis Xavier's College and a second based in Andralanitra on the outskirts of Tananarive, in partnership with the Agence française de développement, as reported by the Midi Madagasikara newspaper.
 
As a reminder, the Malagasy president Hery Rajaonarimampianina announced at the beginning of his mandate to reach 400,000 tourists in 18 months by reviving the sector.
 
The National Agency of tourism of Madagascar (ONTM) already registered an increase of more than 7% of the tourists in the island between the months of January and April 2014.
 
255.942 foreign tourists were welcomed in Madagascar in 2012.
