Over 60 senior delegates from Tanzania, Kenya, Burundi, Zimbabwe and Sudan participated in the seminar. Participants were from public and private sectors in tourism, natural resources, antiquities and cultural sites, and planning departments.
Mackay-based Mr Noakes is working alongside Dr Scott Richardson from Noosa Campus to implement CQUniversity's new tourism degrees. These key academics are members of the UNWTO Global Panel of Tourism Experts.
