Cape Town – 03 June 2015. Wesgro met with the Deputy Minister of Home Affairs, Fatima Chohan, to discuss the effect of visa regulations on tourism, business and the film industry.
At the meeting, the minister agreed that the department would be available for a workshop – to be co-ordinated by Wesgro – for Cape Town and Western Cape companies to engage on the effect of our visa and immigration regulations.
Wesgro CEO Tim Harris says “as the official tourism, trade and investment promotion agency for Cape Town and the Western Cape, Wesgro take a particular interest in the effect of the regulatory regime on business, film and tourism in the province.There is a need for the private and public sectors to work together to iron out the issues around the current visa regulations. We welcome the open door approach of the Department of Home Affairs and believe that this workshop could prove to be an important step in the right direction.”
The department has confirmed that they will be able to attend the workshop in the month of June 2015. Wesgro will advise on venue and date in due course.
