South Africa aims to promote itself as a destination of choice for African continent

Published on : Monday, July 15, 2019

South Africa is striving to promote the country as a destination of choice for the African continent and the diaspora, Tourism Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane said.

 

“Initiatives will include partnering with online travel agencies, targeting the ‘leisure’ market, partnerships with South African product owners to drive affordable family packages and delegate boosting at exhibitions, association meetings and business chambers,” the minister said while participating in a debate on the department’s budget vote in Parliament on Wednesday.

 

The department will work tirelessly to remove all obstacles that may stand in the way of tourists who want to enjoy their journey to South Africa.

 

“In this regard, we are happy to report that recent visa waiver for Russia and Angola had a positive impact on the number of international travellers who graced our shores.

 

“We are also encouraged by the announcement made by the Minister of Home Affairs, Dr Aron Motsoaledi, that South Africa’s new e-visa system is expected to launch within this financial year.

 

“These demonstrates that close collaboration between the two departments can lead to a positive economic impact, which augurs well with the priority of the sixth administration of working together to grow our economy,” she said.
