Sithole, Mr KP to ask the Minister of Tourism

Whether, given that despite the eased regulations the tourism industry remains the hardest hit sector due to the nationwide lockdown to curb the spread of Covid-19, her department has a plan to implement adjustments in pricing in order to promote local tourism as has become a global trend?


The setting of prices falls within the ambit of the private sector. South African Tourism does engage the sector to consider special offers as part of the promotion activities they conduct i.e. Sho’t Left programme. The Minister of Tourism has commenced with a consultation process with the sector on the concept of dual pricing.
