The Strategic Strategy Framework is intended to guide and coordinate the development of sustainable transboundary tourism, and to facilitate the removal of barriers to tourism development, investment promotion and growth in the GLTFCA region. Cognisant of the COVID-19 pandemic impact on tourism to and within the destination, the Transboundary Tourism Development document must also include recovery strategies for implementation at GLTFCA regional level.
