THIS TRAVEL & TOURISM WEEK

For the week ending 13 June 2018

Dear Members and Colleagues

Welcome to our latest edition of our Weekly newsletter.  This week saw the release of some grim economic data from Statistics South Africa.  The latest GDP figures reflect a 2.2% contraction in the first quarter of 2018.  Not to mention the recent 82c per liter petrol price hike.   o

In other topical news, include the process he closing date for public comments on the renaming of four airports run by ACSA – Cape Town International Airport, East London Airport, Port Elizabeth International Airport and Kimberly Airport.  This is done under the Transformation of Heritage Landscape Government Programme.

The week under review also saw the observance of World Environment Day which includes Oceans Day.  We share information on what some of our members are doing in this regard, specifically highlighting the #WasteStopsWITHME initiative by Tsogo Sun, as well as upcoming workshops on plastic waste by Fair Trade Tourism.  Still on members’ news, shifting the focus on the youth, we also remind you of an initiative led by FEDHASA, that will see more young people being trained in the hospitality field.

On the regional front, this week saw the hosting of the 61st Meeting of the UNWTO Commission for Africa in Abuja, Nigeria, 4-6 June, under the theme Tourism Statistics: A Catalyst for Development”. The meeting included a ministerial dialogue on the importance of tourism statistics under the topic “Better measure, better manage”.
