Philda Kereng

Botswana is developing a digital museum to facilitate access to the country’s heritage and cultural crafts for the international audience.

The project is part of the country’s efforts to position Botswana as a destination of choice and also to be relevant on the international stage, said Philda Kereng, Botswana’s Minister of Environment, Natural Resources Conservation and Tourism. According to Kereng, the virtual museum will provide an opportunity for Batswana artists to showcase their works to the world and is expected to be completed by December this year.

Due to the limited movement of people following the imposition of travel restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic, Botswana’s tourism industry has been hit hard.
