2011-01-31 00:00

UGU South Coast Tourism held its second annual general meeting at the Port Shepstone Country Club on Thursday to elect a new Port Shepstone committee for 2011 and for the organisation’s CEO, Michael Bertram, to introduce the plans for the coming year.

Sadha Naidoo, former chairperson of Umhlanga Tourism, was the guest speaker.

Bertram hailed the role that Naidoo had played in securing 120 bursaries that will see South Coast-based individuals trained in the tourism and hospitality industry and placed at establishments around the region.

“This is a productive partnership between the government and the private sector and we urge members of the public to take on one or two of these individuals in your establishments,” said Bertram.

Naidoo encouraged members of the public to engage with the placement programme.

After sharing some of his experiences of his time at Umhlanga Tourism, during which Gateway Shopping Mall was built, Naidoo said he believes the South Coast is in capable hands under Bertram and his team.

“The structures that you have in place here at South Coast Tourism are among the best I have seen in the country,” said Naidoo.

A new committee of eight members was elected.

“We are looking to the members of the new committee to shape the way that tourism operates in our area,” said Bertram.
