The Department of Tourism has continued to receive enquiries
since the closure of the Tourism Relief Fund about the prospects of new
funding to continue to support enterprises who are facing renewed
challenges due to the impact of COVID19.
Addressing the high-Level Ministerial Panel under the theme “Strengthening Brand Africa for the swift recovery of the tourism sector” the Deputy Minister highlighted the importance of rebuilding the continental brand through actions that dispel negative perceptions about the business environment on the continent.
It has been just more than a year
since COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic and the virus continues to
disrupt our lives and may continue to do so for some time to come. The
pandemic has so far left countries facing tremendous economic pain and
inequality, which can only be overcome through collective action.
