Message published in Original document BTTR PROGRAM BOOK, Back to the Roots Tours.
While responsible for the Tourism portfolio in the Government of Cape Verde, we can only praise the promoters of the initiative called “Back to the Roots Travel Show”. This initiative fits well with the Government’s purposes in encouraging and promoting ethnic tourism. The connection of our emigrants to the “mother land”, coupled with the respect and skills they have gained in the world, leads us to affirm that Ethnic Tourism is one of the sustainability pillars of the Cape Verde Tourist Destination. And it is for this reason that, from the beginning, we accept to be one of the partners of the event.
Humberto Brito – Minister of Tourism
