    SYNOPSIS: In Kampala on Saturday, the Chairman of Uganda's Tourist Board, William Ocora, joined other officials to welcome the Director-General for the Tourist Board of the Congo Democratic Republic, Makal Adhema.

    Mr Adhema was heading a four-man delegation from Congo-Kinshasa. The group planned to discuss, with the Uganda authorities, ways and means of boosting tourism in the two countries.

    The mission from Congo-Kinshasa had also arrived to attend the Second Tripartite Conference on Coordinating National Parks and Tourism. The three-day conference, which opens on the twenty-second of September, will be attended by Congo-Kinshasa, Rwanda and Uganda as participants, with Burundi and Kenya as observers.

    The three participating countries share National Parks on their common borders. They have realised the need for free movement of tourists across the borders, within the parks. Welcomed by the three sides, there seems little doubt of adopting such a scheme during the forthcoming conference. The first conference of this nature was held in Kinshasa two years ago.
