Tourism Business Council of SA CEO Tshifhiwa Tshivhengwa says marketing will be difficult with the R1 billion budget cut.

The tourism industry says since the start of the COVID-19 lockdown it has lost R68 billion.

The industry is asking the government to open re-open most of the hospitality industry.

Minister of Finance Tito Mboweni delivered a supplementary Budget speech in Parliament and this is what Tourism Business Council of South Africa CEO Tshifhiwa Tshivhengwa thought about it.

The sad news is that the tourism department which includes the South African tourism had a cut of a billion rand which is significant.

We have learned a lot and have gained insights on how can we protect the people in our properties.
