The fact was announced Thursday by the local director of the Ministry of Culture, Tourism, Youth and Sports, José Albano Canombo Manuel.

Speaking to ANGOP, Canombo Manuel admitted that the sector is open to partnerships both by national and foreign entrepreneurs.

In view of the financial constraints, the director said, the government is not in a position to invest in tourism potential, despite the interest in recognising the role of the sector in economic diversification.

He pointed out that this region has quite attractive areas, but they are abandoned because they are not being exploited, either by the Government or by private entrepreneurs.

As an example, he pointed to Moco hill, the highest point in the country and recently elected as one of the seven wonders of the country.

Other sites include Monte Halavala, island Cuile, Caninguili rock figures, Luvulu II river, Kutato river, Kubango river source, tomb of the legendary hunter Wambo Kalunga, Mount Ombandjela, Ngove hydroelectric power station, Fety Archaeological Station, and Nganda and Kawe stones.
