Tourism Sector Charter

2. Our Commitment


(2.1) Whilst we acknowledge that two main challenges face the Tourism Sector, namely:
the need to become more globally competitive; and
the need to include black people in the Tourism Sector.


(2.2) We believe that these two challenges are fundamentally linked. For our sector to thrive and grow, we commit to both. The commitment to empowerment and transformation is therefore based not only on our moral obligations with regard to a transforming South Africa, but also upon our fiduciary obligations to our shareholders and employees, and to the growth of our sector within the broader South African economy.


(2.3) The stakeholders make this commitment fully aware of the fact that empowerment and transformation of the Tourism Sector will contribute to its growth and sustainability. The key areas of focused empowerment and transformation, in the context of this Scorecard, are: Ownership, Management Control, Employment Equity, Skills Development, Preferential Procurement, Enterprise Development, Socio-Economic Development and Industry Specific Indicators, as set out in the attached Tourism Sector Codes.
