“We will do our utmost best to support all Tourism enterprises in the province to play a meaningful role in the mainstream Tourism Economy, facilitate the provision of tourism supporting infrastructure to enhance the competitiveness of the tourism destination. The department will partner with the Tourism Enterprise Program (TEP) and other private Sector initiatives to develop off take agreements in support of Tourism Enterprise Development in the Province,” she said.

MEC Mohono added that in enhancing cooperation and coordination between all spheres of government and the development and management of tourism in the province, her department will consult with both District and Local municipalities in establishing institutional capacity within government that will ensure the implementation of the Provincial Tourism Sector Strategy

“We will establish a forum between the MEC and the MMCs responsible for local economic development both at District and local municipalities. Furthermore together with the districts and local municipalities the department will establish local, district and Provincial tourism associations”, she said.

“The department will finalise the tourism product and infrastructure portfolio investment plan to address the skewed supply structure of the tourism plant and diversifying tourism products and formalising the segment or niche of heritage and cultural tourism. Furthermore, the department will also continue to lobby the National Department of Tourism through the Social Responsibility Program in funding the recapitalisation and commercialisation of productive tourism assets owned by the Provincial Government”, concluded Mohono.
