SOUTH AFRICA JOINS CCTN

Countrystyle Community Tourism Network has appointed Partners to establish CCTN /IIPT South Africa.

This was announced by CCTN President, Diana McIntyre-Pike who extended a warm Caribbean welcome to the new Partners from South Africa, Nikki De Pina, Adv Don Leffler, Louw Allan and Victor Sibeko.

South Africa has invested significant resources in Tourism development to grow its economy, create employment and alleviate poverty. After very successfully hosting the 2010 FIFA World Cup, South Africa has positioned itself to extend its Tourism footprint to include a focus on Community Tourism.

CCTN / IIPT South Africa has arranged an Education Tour to Jamaica in February next year to learn about the Caribbean “Villages as Businesses Model”.

Diana McIntyre-Pike looks forward to sharing the CCTN learning’s and experiences with South Africa and other countries which share the belief of developing communities to achieve economic growth for the betterment of all its people.

    Diana McIntyre-Pike , President of CCTN / IIPT Caribbean:

    I am delighted to announce the formation of the Countrystyle Community Tourism Network (CCTN) South Africa and the International Institute for Peace through Tourism South Africa chapter which is the first international arm of CCTN outside of the Caribbean region.

     

    We are honoured to assist South Africa with the implementation of the Villages as Businesses programme which was created by Countrystyle and is in partnership with the National Best Community Foundation and the Western Hospitality Institute Jamaica which has now designed the first accredited Village tourism operations certificate training programme.

    Thanks Don and your partners for making all of this a reality – we look forward to seeing you in Jamaica in 2012!
