THE Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma Municipality has encouraged young people to consider tourism as their career choice. The request came during the official launch of a partnership between the municipality and the Tourism World Organisation at Bulwer last Friday. Thirty young people from the area were recruited for induction into tourism. “Tourism is one of the key drivers of economic growth in the area,” said Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma Municipality tourism manager, Andile Zwezwe. He thanked municipal employees for the successful partnership and congratulated the young recruits. He also urged them to grab this opportunity. “We are investing in our youth because we strongly believe that they are the future leaders,” he said. — Supplied.
