STATEMENT BY THE CITY’S MAYORAL COMMITTEE MEMBER FOR ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES AND ASSET MANAGEMENT, ALDERMAN JAMES VOS

According to recent statistics, the Cape Town International Airport (CITA) has contributed R4,7 billion to the South African economy. Of this, R2 billion went towards the income of South African workers, supporting 43 608 direct and indirect jobs.

At the annual Feather Awards Ceremony this morning, I had the opportunity to pay tribute to the incredible team who make the airport a success. Our globally competitive airport is often recognised for service excellence and has been awarded the most accolades in Africa.

It is a pleasure to partner with CTIA to help deliver on this consistent world-class performance.

My priority, for the past year, has been to position my portfolio as the City’s growth directorate. This means that we focus our energy on attracting investment, which in turn creates jobs and leads to economic growth.

A key driver of growth through tourism and trade is what I have termed the ‘Blue Economy’ that encompasses both the aviation and ocean economies.

The countdown to the end-of-year summer break has begun, but it’s also the season when many South Africans fall prey to tummy bugs, unexpected colds, migraines and other nasties which can spoil the holiday fun.

Alisha Mackintosh, Allergy and Immunity Portfolio Manager at Pharma Dynamics says it’s likely that certain changes in our routine may be to blame.

“During the holidays we travel more, eat out-, shop- and party more. We stay up late and are perhaps a little more relaxed about hygiene, which can weaken our immune system and make us more susceptible to viruses and bacteria.”

How healthy soil can mitigate Climate Change.

Land degradation such as unsustainable farming practices, industrial activities, mining, untreated urban waste and other non-environmental friendly practices are all human activities that affect our soil.

World Soil Day is held annually on 5th December, to raise awareness of the importance of soil quality for human well-being, food security and ecosystems. Soil carbon that is released into the atmosphere, through land degradation, is a big contributor to climate change.

Karen Shippey, Chief Director for Sustainability at the Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning (DEA&DP) says: “Soil is essentially a non-renewable resource as it takes years, decades, even centuries, to grow a centimetre of healthy topsoil.”

Springbok Sevens coach Neil Powell knows the route to the top of the podium at the Emirates Airline Dubai Sevens – he has after all lifted the trophy more than once as a player, and watched his team do the same as a coach.

The Dubai tournament – the first of ten in the 2019/20 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series – starts at The Sevens Stadium on Thursday, with the Blitzboks playing Kenya in their only match of the day.

Ann according to Powell, the Blitzboks arrived in Dubai confident after good preparation in Stellenbosch for the last two months.

“We also played in a warm-up tournament, so a lot of things we wanted to do have happened – but the real test remains here in Dubai when the tournament and series start,” said Powell.

South Africa have won the Dubai title six times before and for Powell a good start has always indicated what the season has in store for the Blitzboks.

“The pre-season normally manifests itself here and in Cape Town next weekend, but I think we have laid a good foundation for the opening two weeks,” he explained.

“There are a couple of challenges though. We needed to get through the 10-hour flight and its effects, and then a slight mindset change as the tournament is now starting a day earlier and will be played over three days and not the usual two.”
