2023 Best Practices Workshop

The 2023 Best Practices Workshop 2023 will be co-hosted in partnership with Western Cape Provincial Department of Economic Development & Tourism in Cape Town, South Africa from 8 to 10 March 2023 in Cape Town under the theme: “Rethinking Tourism - Tourism Transformation: Women, Youth and Community Participation”.  

The Best Practices Workshops is a mechanism for the South African Department of Tourism to implement existing agreements between the Department and its African counterparts through information sharing on matters related to sustainable tourism growth and development. 

The platform is aligned to the provisions of South Africa's foreign policy which supports the development of the region and the continent. The workshop can be viewed as an initiative by South Africa towards implementing the signed bilateral agreements and building tourism capacity within the African continent and strengthening of regional and continental integration.

The objective of these workshops among others includes: sharing information and best practices, identifying strategies to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 on the tourism sector and the strengthening of regional integration and cooperation.
