The tourism sector contributes significantly to the national and provincial economies of South Africa. However, the inclusion of tourism activities in other sectors requires an independent analysis of the sector’s impact on the economy, especially at the local level. Therefore, the objective of the study was to determine the tourism sector’s contribution to the economy of the Limpopo Province through primary survey.

This contribution is measured in terms of spending by tourists; job creation; skills development; tourists arrival and departure; capacity of establishments, etc. All these indicators show that there is a great potential for the tourism sector in Limpopo to develop and improve its current contribution to the local and the national economies. Empirical findings from the survey support the secondary data that, the tourism sector contributes positively to the national and the provincial economies.

The seminar may be attended in Pretoria, Cape Town and Durban.

Kindly RSVP by 03 September 2014.
