A new venture called South Coast Tourism and Investment Enterprise (SCTIE) is set to give the KZN South Coast a much needed tourism boost.
KZN South Coast a ‘region of unlimited potential and opportunities’
The launch of the South Coast Tourism and Investment Enterprise (SCTIE) took place recently, and the initiative aims to do a lot for the KZN South Coast area.
The SCTIE is a partnership undertaken by Ugu South Coast Tourism (USCT) and Ugu South Coast Development Agency (USCDA) to optimise service delivery, enhance efficiencies and cut costs. Some of the main functions of SCTIE include tourism growth and investment attraction. The venture will also operate as the local tourism authority representing tourism businesses in the South Coast region.
The Tourism and Investment Enterprise also aims to showcase the KZN South Coast as an accessible, year-round, leisure destination of choice in South Africa, with a wide range of nature and outdoor experiences, both land and water-based.
The region will be highlighted as a premier beach destination with the added bonus of rich culture and heritage, value-for-money and family-friendly offerings.
According to IOL, South Coast Tourism and Investment Enterprise chairperson, Dr Sipho Nzimande, said that the region has unlimited potential and opportunities. The formulation, then, of the South Coast Tourism and Investment Enterprise as the official economic development arm will allow them to identify and unlock the full tourism and investment potential of this region.
Agri-CULTURE farm tours
In another bid to boost tourism in the area, Ugu South Coast Tourism (USCT) also launched the KZN South Coast Agri-CULTURE farm tours venture back in March this year. Read more about it here.
