Africa must stand strong even under its most challenging times says Alain St.Ange, the African Tourism Board President.

  1. South Africa has announced new restrictions due to COVID-19 infections in the country.

“It is very clear for us at the African Tourism Board (ATB) that as the continent makes one step forward, it is pushed to retreat by 2 or 3 steps back. These challenges are hurting, and as the Tourism Board of the continent, we say we must stand strong even under these challenging times,” said St.Ange, the President of the African Tourism Board and former Tourism, Civil Aviation, Ports and Marine Minister of the Seychelles.

The President announced in a national address on May 30, 2021, that the Ministerial Advisory Committee on COVID-19 has recommended that South Africa urgently implement further restrictions. The new restrictions include:
