The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on the South African tourism industry. Many businesses have struggled to survive, and the country’s economy has suffered as a result. In order to revive the industry and attract tourists once again, the appointment of an interim board for SA Tourism is a crucial step.
Emphasizing Inclusive Tourism
The new board’s focus on inclusive tourism is particularly important. The industry’s growth should benefit all communities, and the board’s efforts should ensure this. The appointment of a strong team with diverse experience is a positive step towards achieving the board’s goals.
A Strong Team for Success
Ms Kholeka Zama’s financial expertise, Mr Tim Harris’ tourism and economic promotion skills, and Mr Vincent Zwelibanzi Mntambo’s legal background will be valuable assets in steering SA Tourism towards success. Their different skills and experiences will help the board achieve its objectives.
Cooperation and Alignment
The meeting between Minister de Lille, the interim board, and the Director General of the Department of Tourism highlighted the urgent need for cooperation and alignment between all parties involved. This is crucial for the efficient working of SA Tourism and for the achievement of its objectives.
