The tourism and hospitality sector seeing signs of recovery with StatsSABy ATTA®
South Africa’s tourism and hospitality sector is seeing signs of recovery with StatsSA reporting a second-consecutive month of growth, according to its Accommodation and Food and Beverage performance reports.
There is reason for optimism that the industry would enjoy continued growth and recovery as it heads into the festive season.
Says Rosemary Anderson, FEDHASA National Chairperson: “The hospitality industry is clawing its way back to being a viable industry once again, with businesses putting in significant capital to market themselves in an effort to secure these increases.”
This, together with the support of the South African public and growing international tourism arrivals, have ensured that in September 2021, all accommodation types recorded positive year-on-year growth in income. The largest positive month-on-month growth rates were recorded for guesthouses and guest farms (30,3%), hotels (21,5%) and other accommodation (19,4%).
