De Freitas, Mr MS to ask the Minister of Tourism
With reference to the opening of international borders, what (a) are the plans to engage National Treasury to obtain more of the budget and (b) would be the main requirements for the budget?
The Department of Tourism, as is the case with all other organs of state at a national level, make budget requirements and motivation submissions to the National Treasury within the medium term expenditure framework (MTEF) cycle which concludes with the budget speech prior to the finalisation of the Annual Performance Plans (APPs). Thus the Department and its entity, South African Tourism ensures that the APPs are within the financial means available in terms of the MTEF allocations.
a) and (b) Not applicable
