The South African government will continue to work with other African countries to attract more international investment and visitors to the continent.

This, according to Tourism Minister Lindiwe Sisulu, who yesterday opened the 2022 Africa Travel Indaba in Durban.

Sisulu says challenges, such as xenophobia, unnecessary red tape, and immigration irregularities deter investments and scare off overseas tourists.

She says all African countries have the potential domestic tourism numbers to help their respective tourism sectors rebuild and recover after the Covid-19 pandemic.

The minister says cooperation between African countries, could also help boost intra-continental tourism.
