“The most critical issue for the reopening of travel and tourism is the speed of procurement as far as the vaccine is concerned”, says TBCSA ceo, Tshifhiwa Tshivhengwa.
In his presentation to Parliament during the Tourism Portfolio Committee meeting, Tshifhiwa stressed that frontline tourism staff such as hotel reservationists, tour guides and other people at the forefront of guest interactions should be considered for the vaccination sooner rather than later.
He went on to say that the TBCSA members would do whatever was needed to make this a reality, from raising funds to help facilitate the vaccination of staff, to offering up tourism venues as vaccination centres. He mentioned in his presentation that its members could put up a sum of R12m if needed to facilitate this.
All of this hangs in the balance and is in Govt’s hand to procure enough vaccinations & then to rollout speedily to the whole nation.
