The tourism ministry and Tourism Business Council of South Africa will conduct a survey on the state of transformation in the tourism industry, the department said today.

“The results of the survey will be released by February and will show how businesses in the tourism sector have responded to black economic empowerment,” the department said.

It said the tourism sector had been accused of lagging behind on the transformation front.

“The national tourism sector strategy requires that the sector should achieve a 70% target by 2014.”

The department wanted to have a tool to measure how the tourism industry had implemented broad-based black economic empowerment.

The survey will conducted this month and next month.

“Transformation in the tourism sector is said to be moving at a slow pace and the transformation of the sector will contribute to the development of our economy and alleviate poverty,” said the department.
