The Tourism Business Council of SA says Cape Town is still open for business despite the water crisis.
Vice-chairman Tourism Business Council of SA, Ravi Nadasen says although negative media reports have triggered some alarmist reactions, this has had little impact on tourism sector.
We have had a few cancellations trickle in but I think the most important thing for us right now is to be sending out the message that Cape Town is open for business.— Ravi Nadasen, Vice-Chairman Tourism Business Council of SA
He says the impact of tourists in the city has only had 1% impact on the burden of water consumption.
There has been this growing notion in recent weeks that lets not go to Cape Town and place additional strain on the city's water resources and I think that could not be further from the truth.— Ravi Nadasen, Vice-Chairman Tourism Business Council of SA
The city has guaranteed that places like the CBD will not be disrupted and that is where most of your hotel groups lie. Quite a few of the hotel groups have already found alternative sources of water so there is no real threat.— Ravi Nadasen, Vice-Chairman Tourism Business Council of SA
