Guinea to revamp two-star Labe tourism hotel
The Guinean tourism ministry has signed a deal with SAB-TRANSIT SAU to refurbish and expand state-owned two-star tourism hotel Labe located in Labe, the capital of “Moyenne Guinee”, as part of the West african country’s efforts to revamp tourism potential, local reports say.
Alpha Soumah, Minister of tourism signed an agreement with Elhadj BAH Mamadou Alpha as the state official visited the region as part of a nation-wide tour to take stock of the country’s hotel infrastructure.
“When we went on a government immersion, the most requested hotel was this hotel, people asked us why we wouldn’t invest in this hotel? We said that there is someone who manages the hotel, but he does not have a contract with us. That’s why he is afraid to invest. We even decided to close, but as you reassured us that’s why we came to this point today,” Soumah said.
Mamadou on the other hand promised to deliver on the content of the deal. “I thank you Mr. Minister, we must unite for the development of our country at all levels. We will make other contracts in the future because the public and the private sector must unite for the development of the country. We are very happy with the signing of this agreement and promise to respect our share of the market. I would like to thank all the technicians who worked on this agreement, which allowed us to have the courage to invest,” SAB-TRANSIT SAU Head said.
Labe hotel, located in Moyenne Guinee, is a 72-room hotel and most sought after in the region, north of the West African country. The government of Guinea is willing to revamp the country’s tourism potential including the hospitality sector.
