|Tourism Charter is now a draft Section 9 sector code|

The dti has gazetted the tourism charter as a draft section 9 sector code. This is one step away from the tourism charter becoming the first sector code.
You can read it here
The charter is in draft form for a period of 60 days during which time the public will have the opportunity of providing comment. Thereafter, and depending on comments received it may be adjusted or gazetted.
Once gazetted in final form this charter will apply to a wide range of entities:
Accommodation - hotels to guesthouses and backpackers
Once again it appears as if big business is benefiting at the expense of the smallest businesses. Big business has been given the very big dispensation of reduced ownership targets, while startup and small businesses are effectively no longer exempt if they want to do business with government.
We will publish an EXCEL spreadsheet of this scorecard shortly and additional comments. Watch this space!
