This week’s comment comes from the CEO of the African Travel & Tourism Association (ATTA) Chris Mears, who described how he believes South Africa’s tourism industry should respond to COVID19.

“The tourism industry is notoriously resilient. Now, more than ever, it is important that we work together in a calm and realistic way to meet the challenges ahead as the situation evolves,” he said.

Interaction with our readers is an exciting part of what we do at Tourism Update. Reading comments on articles, seeing likes and shares on social media and getting feedback emails are constant reminders of the passionate audience we serve.
