During the tourism month, the Democratic Alliance says it will request that the Portfolio Committee on Tourism launch an investigation into the steps that can be taken to boost domestic tourism in South Africa, improving local economies around the country.

This follows increasing evidence that domestic tourism is coming under pressure, because of a worsening economy and the lack of affordable holiday destinations.

DA shadow Minister of Tourism James Vos said, “We must found ways and means to get South Africans to experience the country and travel around the various provinces so that we can stimulate the local economies in many parts in our country.”
