The Tourism Ministry is set to unveil a new marketing strategy informed by a study on what ails the sector.

Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala said the study, carried out by two international consultancy firms, identified key areas of weakness.

"The research came up with four key issues that need serious attention to help reposition destination Kenya as a world-class tourist location, among them product development," he said in Malindi at the opening of the refurbished Dreams Garden Resort, part of the Plan Hotel World Beach Resorts.
