Cruise tourism brings wave of economic opportunities to our shoresIn recent years, the City of Cape Town has had the pleasure of welcoming numerous cruise ships to the city<p>​</p><p>In recent years, the City of Cape Town has had the pleasure of welcoming numerous cruise ships to the city. The City's Mayoral Committee Member for Economic Opportunities and Assets Management, Alderman James Vos, visited the cruise liners to personally extend a warm welcome on behalf of the City.</p><p>The Queen Elizabeth cruise liner is no stranger to the city’s shores and carries 2 068 passengers and 996 crew members.</p><p>The MSC Musica has 1 268 passenger cabins which can accommodate 2 550 passengers in double occupancy and is served by about 990 crew members.<br>‘Cape Town is fast becoming the preferred port of call for inbound and outbound international cruise travellers to South Africa. We had the honor of welcoming the Aida Aura from her world cruise last week and she was carrying 1 200 passengers and 390 crew members. Today, we welcome two cruise liners who have collectively brought in over 4 000 visitors to our shores. We trust they will enjoy the day in Cape Town and take time out to visit some of the city’s world-class tourist attractions,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Economic Opportunities and Asset Management, Alderman James Vos. <br>The cruise industry has experienced significant growth from just 6 050 passengers in 2012, to 29 269 passengers in 2016, and 31 035 passengers in 2017. During the 2016/17 cruise season, approximately 19 vessels visited the Cape Town harbor. There is also a significant increase in local cruising along the South African coastline (Source: V&A Waterfront).</p><p>The cruise tourism industry has shown significant year-on-year growth and makes a substantial contribution not only to this city’s economy but to the South African economy at large.<br>‘This sector has the potential to grow even further with huge economic spin-offs for the city and its residents. I will work with our tourism partners and the V&A Waterfront to promote the city as a destination of choice globally for cruise tourism. For every 12 tourists visiting our shores, one job is created. We will continue to invest in tourism programmes and projects that drive demand and make business sense, as tourism sustains about 150 000 jobs in Cape Town,’ said Alderman Vos.<br>The recent construction of a dedicated cruise terminal, funded by the V&A Waterfront, has proven to be a worthwhile venture and it is already showing a massive return on investment. The City is proud to promote this as an economic driver.  </p><span><div class="image-gallery-slider img-gal-1" id="img-gal-1" data-slide="1" data-slides="3" style="height:493.5px;"><div class="image-gallery-content" style="height:414px;">​​​​ <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-1"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/Cape%20Town%20Cruise%20Terminal%20and%20QE1_a.jpg" alt="" style="width:949px;" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p> <a title="title" href="#"> <b></b></a>The MS Queen Elizabeth and the MSC Musica luxury cruise liners </p> </figcaption> </figure> <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-2"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/CTCT-B.jpg" alt="" style="width:933px;" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p> <b></b>The MS Queen Elizabeth and the MSC Musica luxury cruise liners </p> </figcaption> </figure> <figure class="itemSlide slide-left slide-3"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/CTCT.jpg" alt="" style="width:2137px;" /> <figcaption class="image-slide-text" style="display:none;"> <p> <b></b>The MS Queen Elizabeth and the MSC Musica luxury cruise liners </p> </figcaption> </figure> </div><div class="image-gallery-control"><div class="image-gallery-caption"><p> <a title="title" href="#"> <b>Aerial view of Cape Town</b></a> - Loren ipsum dolor sit amet loren ipsum dolor sit amet Loren ipsum dolor sit amet.</p></div><div class="image-gallery-nav"><div class="nav-info">1 of 3</div><div class="slide-next"> <i class="icon arrow-white-next"></i> </div><div class="slide-prev"> <i class="icon arrow-white-prev"></i>​</div></div></div></div>​​</span><p> </p><p>Without a doubt, the cruise liner industry offers enormous potential for tourism growth.

These economic benefits arise from a number of sources such as the spending power by cruise passengers and crew, the shoreside staffing by cruise liners for tour operations, the spending by cruise liners for goods and services necessary for cruise operations, and the spending for port services and maintenance.</p><p>‘Based on the number of confirmed bookings for the 2019/20 cruise season, we can already see a dramatic increase in the number of vessels due to visit our port and city,’ added Alderman Vos.</p><p><strong>End</strong></p><p> </p>2019-01-17T22:00:00Z1
Community support drives efforts to improve living conditions in Enkanini The proposed Enkanini human settlements upgrade project is expected to kick off in 2020<p>The proposed Enkanini human settlements upgrade project is expected to kick off in 2020. Progress has been delayed due to the illegal occupation of parts of the earmarked project land as well as challenges related to the temporary relocation of people to enable the sites to be cleared for the proposed project. </p><p>Following meetings on 9 and 13 January 2019 which were held between the relevant community members, the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Human Settlements, Councillor Malusi Booi, and Ward Councillor Andile Lili, it was agreed that the illegally erected unoccupied structures on the earmarked land would be removed in order to get the development off the ground. </p><p>‘Many residents in the area have been patiently waiting for this kind of project for many years but work has been delayed as the City struggled to relocate those who had illegally occupied a piece of land required for the development. The hold-up has primarily been by a small group of people whose actions have impacted on thousands of people who have been waiting for a housing opportunity. We have a few examples of this happening across the metro. While we understand that the housing need is acute, we really have to start thinking of the bigger picture to ensure that we are able to provide a greater number of housing opportunities for our people. It is only through grassroots cooperation and partnership that we will be able to tackle the challenge of human settlements and ensure that the living conditions of our people in informal settlements and backyards are improved. A small group of dissenters with unknown agendas will not be allowed to stand in the way of such development – not here or elsewhere,’ said Councillor Booi. </p><p>The site of the proposed development will be cordoned off by the site preparation contractor and an official survey of residents legitimately residing permanently in Vosho informal settlement will be undertaken for the relocation process. Engagements will continue as the process moves forward. </p><p><br><strong>End</strong><br></p>2019-01-16T22:00:00Z1
