The South African Township and Village Tourism Association (SATOVITO) has developed a programme, along with various industry stakeholders, to reduce the red tape that obstructs ease of business in the tourism sector. Members of the trade are encouraged to send through thoughts, suggestions and solutions to current challenges to the sector.
As part of an Inter-Provincial Task Team, SATOVITO has launched the initiative with the Department of Small Business Development, National Department of Tourism, KwaZulu-Natal Department of Economic Development and Tourism, and the Tourism Business Council of South Africa.
Submissions close at 12h00 on July 5.
The red tape challenges and solutions will then be presented to the Department of Small Business Development and the Presidency.
