I may be the first one to pronounce that we need to change the level of importance that tourism has in our economy, but only the proportionate importance. Not abolish the industry all together. There has been a lot of
exaggeration about the meagre value which tourism contributes, that it generates low paid jobs. Well, that depends. There is a high-level tourism which generates a lot of income, apart from being associated with doing business as is the case now.
