South-African-Tourism1Despite challenges, South Africa remains hopeful to continue to draw people to the country in 2016, Sthembiso Dlamini, the Chief Operating Officer of South African Tourism said.

 
“As we look ahead to 2016, we are hopeful and optimistic about what the year holds,” she said.

 
The impact of the visa regulations on the sector dominated discussions but as always, the industry and other affected stakeholders managed to come together and through rigorous consultation, found working solutions,” the COO said in a statement released in the country’s tourism website.

 
She highlighted the numerous challenges faced by the travel and tourism industry worldwide. Tougher global economic climate has seen tourists curtail travel plans or take longer to decide on a holiday destination, she said.

 
On the upcoming events to be held in the country, she remarked, “I implore you too to support us also by participating at our Trade Shows, INDABA and Meetings Africa. Preparations for Africa’s biggest leisure and business tourism trade shows are already in full swing and all indications are that we are well on track to host successful shows.”
