HEADS UP: TOURISM PORTFOLIO COMMITTEE PLANS TO MEET WITH BUSINESS
The Tourism Portfolio Committee (TPC) plans to host nationwide stakeholder engagements involving the travel and tourism trade in 2017. The key objectives of each provincial engagement will be:
- for trade to offer suggestions to government on challenges and best practices to improve tourism service delivery;
- to get a briefing from the trade on the state of tourism in the province;
- to conduct oversight on how tourism attractions are maintained;
- to conduct oversight on community/rural initiatives as well as infrastructure/business projects in progress or in the pipeline
Although no dates and venues have been confirmed, the first set of engagements are set to take place in the Free State from 27 – 31 March 2017. We have been requested by TPC to urge our members to participate and encourage RSVPs to each event. So, please look out as we bring you more on these important engagements between trade and government once the dates are confirmed.
