BLSA’s Mavuso has welcomed the removal of SA from the UK’s red list of countries as it will resume business travel, however, noting that the change is late.
On Monday, 11 October 2021, Business Leadership South Africa’s (BLSA) CEO, Busi Mavuso welcomed the decision by the United Kingdom (UK) to finally remove South Africa from its red list of countries, although she also noted that this has come a bit too late. Although Mavuso has welcomed the decision, noting that the BLSA organisation had written to the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson on the impact of South Africa remaining on its red list, she does believe that the change has come late.
However, she does believe that this will now allow for more business travel to resume with one of the country’s biggest trading partners. She also highlighted that the biggest economic damage suffered from the pandemic has been to the hospitality and tourism sectors, due to the collapse of domestic and international travel. She further pointed out how these sectors are some of the most important as they provided employment to 1.5 million people.
