The Imbizo in the Gert Sibande
District Municipality will provide a platform for the Minister, the
executives from the province to engage with the community on the
initiatives and opportunities that exist in the Tourism sector for the youth, women, people with disabilities and SMMEs.
This infrastructure investment is an
important contribution to the strengthening of the supply side of the
tourism market. More broadly, the country’s Economic Reconstruction and
Recovery Plan is anchored on infrastructure investment and development.
Infrastructure projects capitalised
and commissioned by Government and the Private Sector are central to the
Economic Recovery Plan as they provide the much-needed job
opportunities, upskilling of workers as well as general economic
activity with potential to increasing GDP growth.
