SA tourism gearing up to open the industry
South Africa’s move to level 1 allows for the countries tourism sector to open up and exploring what the country offers has been put high on the list.
As the tourism industry recovers, South African’s and international visitors gear up to start exploring the country’s attractions, province at a time. The path to recovery began with this year’s World Tourism Day celebrations hosted at Maropeng’s Cradle of Humankind.
Under the theme, ‘Rural Development and Tourism’, the focus is to drive development towards rural communities through tourism. A plan by the department of Tourism to use domestic tourism market to reignite the sector, by driving tourism to lesser-visited rural communities in all nine provinces.
“As we navigate a path to recovery, and gradually re-open our borders to safely welcome international visitors, we urge South Africans to travel and explore their country responsibly,” said Tourism Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane.
The department of Tourism looks to continue to embrace South Africa’s rich culture and heritage as borders gradually re-open and prioritise safety as it welcomes international visitors.
“Our authentic heritage and cultural experiences have been a draw card for international visitors for many years. Although a large number of employment opportunities have in the past been driven by international tourist arrivals, we believe that these jobs, and those yet to be created, will be sustained by the renewed strength of our domestic tourism markets.”
Engineering World Cup, helping SA’s Engineers Reach International Standards
Engineering has been pushed beyond South Africa’s borders, creating partnerships which allow South Africa’s engineers to reach the international bench-marked standards.
The annual International Engineering Alliance Meeting (IEAM), brings together IEA members to discuss ways to equip them, improving engineering standards to enable them to be compatible according to international standards.
Initiatives such as the “Engineering World Cup” put engineering at the forefront, discussing “strategic issues relating to best practice in accreditation be considered, policies and procedures, accreditation reviews be reviewed and decisions on applications for membership be made.”
To meet international bench-marked standards, IEA members are equipped through engineering education and getting aquainted with the expected competence for engineering practice through the serial of Educational Accords and Competence Agreements.
The “Engineering World Cup”, hosted by the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) brings together delegates from various jurisdictions and countries/regions.
“South Africa is represented in all three accords, namely the Washington, Dublin and Sydney Accord. The broad representation of South Africa in these Accords results in the mobility of professional engineers across the countries where these multi-lateral agreements are in place.”
This allows professional engineers to gain recognition and work in these countries based on the agreements which are put in place.
