South Africa : SATSA welcomes SOUTH AFRICA's new Minister of Tourism.

On behalf of the inbound tourism industry in South Africa, the Southern African Tourism Services Association (SATSA) has welcomed the newly appointed Minister of Tourism, Derek Hanekom.

Moreover the SATSA has hailed the Deputy Minister Thokozile Xasa's re-appointment who has shown her familiarity and interest in the sector she serves across her earlier term in the same role.

SATSA CEO David Frost, said : "We are incredibly fortunate to have Derek Hanekom as our new Minister of Tourism. I worked closely with Minister Hanekom when he was Minster of Agriculture in the 1990s when I was at The Premier Group on de-regulating the agro-food sector and building competitiveness fora. He will bring a considered and balanced wisdom to the sector, and I for one, can t wait to work with him again."

The organization would also like to thank the departing Minister of Tourism Martinus Van Schalkwyk for his exemplary work in developing and boosting the profile of tourism in the country over the last 10 years.
