“This is not by chance. Much hard work has gone into ensuring that our city is top of mind as a destination of choice, no matter what you are looking for,” said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Economic Opportunities and Asset Management, James Vos.
“In 2018, tourism added roughly R18,1 billion to our local economy and directly supported just over 113 000 jobs. This is why tourism remains a priority sector for the City of Cape Town,” he said.
These are the categories the Mother City has been nominated for:
Africa’s leading beach destination;
Africa’s leading business travel destination;
