ACSA: Airports can be a key catalyst in driving regional competitiveness
Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) COO Fundi Sithebe, speaking at AviaDev Africa 2018, said (13-Jun-2018) "airports can be a key catalyst in driving regional competitiveness, especially when physical, economic and material connections are optimised between airport and their respective cities". She added: "Airports have always had a significant role to play in enabling regional economic growth. They contribute many benefits to the wider economy and society at large, including access to markets, jobs, social progress and global connectivity. They also allow connections between cities, which in turn catalyses economic activities".
