A 10.2 percent growth in international tourists to South Africa has been deemed an affirmation of the country’s tourism industry and tourism marketing efforts.However, President Jacob Zuma, who announced the 2012 figures in Cape Town late last week, warned the country against growing complacent in a competitive market.“More and more countries around the world are realising the opportunity that tourism presents…and our geographic position makes our fight for the global tourism share more difficult than most,” he said.According to President Zuma, the South African tourism industry needs to work together to promote the country’s accessibility in order to continue to “fuel [South Africa’s] industry’s success”.Tourists from Central and South America grew by 37 percent in 2012 over the previous year and South Africa also saw impressive growth from Asia (33.7 per cent), lead primarily by population super powers China and India.However, it is still Europe and the United States bringing in the most tourists to the country. 1,386,978 Europeans visited South Africa as did 326,643 tourists from the United States.16.2 percent more Australians visited South Africa last year over 2011.“This phenomenal tourism growth is evidence that we are successfully setting ourselves apart in a competitive marketplace,” President Zuma said.
