Tourism & Hospitality in the Age & Aftermath of Coronavirus

Tourism contributed about R130 billion to South Africa’s GDP in 2018. The sector helps to offset the national balance of payments’ deficit and accounted for more than 1.5 million jobs. The impact of coronavirus and government's lockdowns is expected to see the loss of 1.1 million tourism jobs in South Africa. That is nearly 75% of the tourism industry....

Tourism is not just about holidays. In Johannesburg alone, the retail value of cross border shoppers is put at about R10 billion a year. No other industry benefits the overall economy as much.

Government is throwing tourism under the bus. It is the expendable loss in this disaster. What is does show is that government is too stupid to understand tourism.
