Industry Environment
Change in environment
Implications for Industry and SBU Sector Strategies
Successful hosting of 2010 SWC
Country image enhanced which is expected to result in
increased visitor numbers and improved industry
performance. SA is seen as an investment destination
with potential investment opportunities in the long
term.
New and upgraded tourism
infrastructure
Improved capacity to handle projected growth in visitor
numbers will lead to improved industry performance
and should mitigate market risk for tourism
investments.
Current overcapacity in
accommodation sector in certain
nodes
Hotel performance to remain strained for some time,
cautious investment in accommodation sub-sector in
over developed nodes. Strategic focus on improved
geographic spread and development of nonaccommodation sub-sectors.
Continued depressed economic
climate
Tighter credit markets thus difficulty in raising finance,
new developments stalled, trading conditions strained,
lower travel volumes due to strong Rand.
