The tourism sector plays a vital role as part of the provincial economy. Sustaining businesses and jobs in the sector is crucial towards recovery after lockdown. The Mpumalanga Provincial Government has set aside R10 million to mitigate against the impact of COVID-19 to the tourism sector in the Province. The Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Agency (MTPA) invites Mpumalanga tourism businesses to apply for COVID-19 tourism relief funding. This is in support of the National Tourism Relief Initiative focusing on Mpumalanga’s Small, Medium and Micro enterprises (SMMEs) in distress due to the pandemic.
