NTSS REVIEW
WHY NTSS REVIEW?
 To assess where we are and consider what strategic focus areas
and approaches will help us consolidate current achievements
and take us to the next level whilst contributing to the country’s
long-term goals;
 To ensure that the NTSS responds to global and national trends;
 To give effect to the latest changes to tourism legislation as well
as in the environment generally;
 To ensure that implementation risks are minimized;
 To retain the relevance of the Sector Strategy;

PROPOSED NTSS REVIEW FRAMEWORK/ROADMAP
 Establishment of the Strategy Review Task Team/Working Group
 To oversee and provide strategic guidance and ensure broad input and
consideration of the issues;
 It is envisaged that the Task Team/ Working Group would act as a national
forum to make recommendations on the future Strategy to the Minister.
 Its mandate would be to inter alia:
 Identify the key elements of the Strategy, both industry-led and
Government-led,
 Specify recommendations and actions, to give effect to the future strategy;
and
 Consultation on the contents of the Draft Strategy.
 It will be constituted by senior representatives from stakeholder groups that will
use and be affected by the Strategy including Strategy development experts
with an extensive understanding of the tourism sector; .
 Focus groups to also be utilised.

PROPOSED NTSS REVIEW FRAMEWORK/ROADMAP
 To review the 2011 NTSS, the following three-phased approach is proposed:
 Phase 1: Macro Level Assessment
 This will entail conducting a travel and tourism environmental scan and
formulating broad questions that the strategy should address;
 The environmental scan will assist in identifying the relevant trends, potential
opportunities, challenges and future developments in the external environment
that are most likely to have a significant impact on the development, promotion
and transformation of the tourism sector;
 A detailed review and assessment of the current tourism scenario in the country
and globally will form part of this phase ;
 It is envisaged that, this analysis would set parameters for the comprehensive
and in-depth review of the Strategy.
 A Situational Analysis Report is a major output of the Macro-level assessment.

PROPOSED NTSS REVIEW FRAMEWORK/ROADMAP
 Phase Two: Micro Assessment
 Review of the Strategy’s achievements and challenges, as well as the
areas where it failed to deliver as expected;
 Identifying the actions where implementation is well advanced; where
further progress is required and those that represent key barriers to
further development;
 It will furthermore provide benchmarks for the future growth of the
tourism sector;
 This phase will be finalised in consultation with all established tourism
structures such as MIPTECH and its Working Groups, MINMEC, NTSS
Sub Sector Forums NTSS Clusters and National Tourism Stakeholders
Forum.
 This will ensure that current and future needs of the tourism industry
have been well identified and endorsed by the sector.
 An Options- Analysis Report will be a major outcome of this phase.

PROPOSED NTSS REVIEW FRAMEWORK/ROADMAP
 Phase Three: Reviewing/Drafting of the Strategy
 The drafting will flow from information gathered in phases 1 and 2;
 The reports from the two phases will provide guidance on where a
major review of the NTSS is required or major amendments are
expected and would also set parameters for the comprehensive
and in depth review of the Strategy.
 The drafting process will be initiated in line with the provisions of
the Tourism Act 3 of 2014.
 It will make provision for objectives, measures/indicators, targets,
focus areas and priority actions which would most contribute to the
continued successful development of the sector;
 This will include identification and prioritisation of key
elements/issues to be pursued which could be drivers of future
success so that resources get directed to critical areas for the
development of a robust and more vibrant tourism industry.
