The tourism sector is an important one for our economy and safety is one of the issues affecting the growth of the sector. As government we want to form partnerships with the private sector to address this including deploying more safety tourism monitors to key tourist sites and using technology to improve tourism safety.
Safety is one of the major issues affecting the tourism sector and as partners, government and the private sector, agreed tourism safety is a priority that we need to address collectively so that we can grow the sector and remove any obstacles standing in the way of that objective.
Our goal this year must be to surpass pre COVID arrival numbers. I urge members and MECs to supplement the programmes by the Department of Tourism aimed at supporting tourism enterprises so that we can spread the benefits and growth in all provinces.
In terms of section 13(3)(a) of the Tourism Act, 2014 (the Act), the Minister of Tourism, Ms Patricia de Lille, hereby invites nominations of suitable candidates to be considered for appointment to serve as members of the South African Tourism Board for a three-year term.
Closing date for nominations: 06 June 2023
