Cape Town Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis said there’s an urgent need to adapt. He said the aim was to ensure the survival of the tourism sector. “Absolutely tens of thousands of cancellations, hundreds of millions of rand if not billions, an estimate produced by our provincial government is that just in December, Cape Town will have lost about R250 million from cancelled bookings, so it has a huge impact on the local tourism economy. That is why we had to innovate so quickly to see what we can to help businesses through these difficulties,” said Hill-Lewis. This entry was posted on 14 Jan 2022,04:42PM at 4:42 PM and is filed under
