Finweek English Edition - - IN BRIEF -

Fig­ures re­leased by the In­ter­na­tional Air Trans­port As­so­ci­a­tion (Iata) show a 21% de­cline in year-on-year ticket rev­enue for tick­ets pur­chased to travel to SA, with the tourism in­dus­try blam­ing new visa reg­u­la­tions for the lower num­bers. Min­is­ter of tourism Derek Hanekom urged role play­ers to wait for Cab­i­net to fi­nalise its re­view of the reg­u­la­tions, which in­clude a re­quire­ment that chil­dren travel with unabridged birth cer­tifi­cates. Let’s hope the re­view goes faster than the process of ac­tu­ally get­ting an unabridged birth cer­tifi­cate.
