“Due to the latest red listing, travel bans and travel advisories, we’ve had to be innovative in our approach to showing the world that South Africa is still a must visit destination,” commented Minister of Tourism, Ms Lindiwe Sisulu. The Tourism Month at Expo on the South African pavilion culminates in 18 months of strategizing and planning to deliver an excellent showcase of the best of South Africa.
Tourism Minister Lindiwe Sisulu convened an urgent
meeting with tourism private- sector stakeholders recently to address
proactively how private and public sector could collaborate to mitigate
the effects on the tourism sector of the travel bans instituted this
week against South Africa due to the discovery of the new Covid-19
“While this is most disappointing South Africa will continue working with policy makers in the UK, Japan, Israel and European Union to ensure that the best possible interventions are put in place. I would like to commend the South African scientists on their diligence and all the work they have done and remain confident that all measures will be put in place to mitigate the spread of the virus,” Minister Sisulu said.
