Strategic Plan: 2015 - 2020 - 2015 08 04

Tourism continues to show robust growth and contributes significantly to the South African economy. Through its direct and indirect impacts, the sector contributes over 9% to our country’s GDP and supports over 1.4 million jobs.

The National Development Plan (NDP) offers a long-term perspective, vision and road map to South Africa and its people. Its implementation has been prioritised in the Medium Term Strategic Framework (MTSF) for the next five years. Priorities articulated in the MTSF are embodied in the plans and targets set by the tourism industry. This is underpinned by the National Tourism Sector Strategy (NTSS) and the Domestic Tourism Growth Strategy (DTGS) – among others. The evidence of the success of tourism strategies and plans will be an inclusive, highly competitive and sustainable tourism industry that contributes to job creation and economic growth.
