Minor Hotels’ regional director for Africa, Mark Havercroft, says the reopening of South Africa’s international borders to travellers is a huge step forward for the tourism industry. Newsflash reports that president Cyril Ramaphosa says allowing travel into and out of the country for business, leisure and other travel with effect from the first of next month will be done cautiously. Havercroft says this move holds massive potential to reignite sectors that are critical contributors to the economy as a whole.
