EAST3ROUTE MESSAGE OF SUPPORT FROM THE HON. MINISTER FOR TOURISM - SWAZILAND

Though I was not part of the 2013 East3Route Excursion, I am fully aware of this wonderful initiative and what it was trying to achieve. I am informed that the Swaziland leg was hosted within my constituency in Piggs Peak where I am an elected Member of Parliament. Swaziland also successfully hosted the investment seminar at the Royal Swazi Sun. Delegates had the opportunity to sight most of Swaziland since the excursion entered Swaziland from east through Lomahasha, travelled to the northern part of Swaziland where it spent two nights in Piggs Peak. After hosting a successful seminar the excursion left Swaziland through Lavumisa border gate in the southern part of Swaziland.

On behalf of the Swaziland Government and myself I, wish to take this opportunity to thank all that made sure the event was a success in Swaziland and in the other countries, Mozambique and Kwazulu Natal in South Africa. This being the last leg of the three year program, I would also like to thank my predecessors and in particular, MEC for Economic Development and Tourism, KZN for their wise vision to have such initiative that is aimed at working together for the benefit of our communities in the different countries.

Once more the Swaziland Government we wish to re-iterate the support of the East 3 Route. A lot of work has been done to promote this initiative and it is our wish that we now begin to see the fruits of such work.
