On Thursday, 30 April 2015, the North West Provincial Legislature will be hosting the Tourism Sectoral Parliament under the theme “The role of Tourism in Women Development” in the Legislature Chamber at 10h00.
The Legislature recognises the role of tourism as a significant contributor towards the provincial economic growth. Tourism has been identified as one of the three key pillars that are priority sectors that could contribute to economic growth through job creation and is currently contributing towards the Gross Domestic Products (GDP) of the province.
The objective of the event is to provide a platform for women in the tourism industry to discuss and analyse issues facing them, debate their achievements, encourage the participation of tourism sector in the legislative processes and strengthen the relations within tourism in the province. It will also assist in developing a programme of action that will enhance and capacitate the emerging women in the tourism sector.
Different stakeholders from natural tourism attractions, North West Parks and Tourism Board, Department of Tourism, Women’s Tourism establishments in municipalities, accommodation and transport industries have been invited to attend the event.
