“If we are to reach international standards that are [lasting] within the industry, we have to be very smart in conducting our business… We have to adopt a quality service orientated culture.

“… When the chips are down, this will sustain and drive growth of this sector forward,” MEC Mohono said.

Speaking at the annual Lilizela Tourism Awards ceremony held in Rustenburg on Wednesday, MEC Mohono said the tourism industry must make the most of the province’s tourist attractions and destinations.

“We have a rich and varied past that is only now being appreciated for its complexity and diversity. Our heritage is the foundation from which we are working to rebuild our society,” she said.

MEC Mohono urged the tourism sector to innovate around the countless opportunities in communities, in the province and in the country as a whole.
