STATEMENT ISSUED BY PROF MTUTUZEL MBADI, MP
UDM SPOKESPERSON FOR ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS AND TOURISM

The UDM welcomes the result of a recent survey completed regarding tourism, which indicates that Cape Town has been experiencing a boom in international tourists. We congratulate Cape Tourist administration on their efforts.

The UDM recognises the importance of such developments as it furthers the objective of job creation, thus alleviating poverty, whilest having a positive effect on the economy and the overall living standards of all South Africans.

The UDM calls on government to use the blueprint of Cape Town as an example to be implemented across the country, in order to develop South African tourism to its full potential.
