Public Private Partnership Toolkit for Tourism
South Africa’s tourism industry has experienced considerable growth in the last decade, but despite the many opportunities that exist, the development of tourism-based businesses on state-owned land has been slow. The PPP Manual and Standardised PPP Provisions cannot, however, be summarily applied to tourism PPP projects. National Treasury therefore seeks to boost this strategic sector of the economy by providing practical guidelines in the form of this PPP Toolkit for Tourism, referred to throughout as the Toolkit. It makes the PPP process relevant to the particular characteristics of the country’s nature and heritage tourism industry. The Toolkit should make it easier for institutions and the private sector to enter into tourism-related partnerships on state property managed by national and provincial government institutions.
