Weskus Tourism supported two Women in Tourism events held in Vredenburg and Citrusdal.
These interventions aim to ensure that women are Respected, Recognized, Represented, and Rewarded in the tourism sector.
Speaking at the event Cllr Colin Daniels, portfolio lead for Tourism at the municipality said that it is important that the West Coast District Municipality support the development and empowerment of women in the tourism sector. “We view tourism as an important catalyst for local economic development. Tourism does not only generate much-needed revenue but it also creates jobs and grows entrepreneurship” said Cllr Daniels.
