AFRICA - Johannesburg has won its bid for three global summits in 2013.
 
The C40 Summit on Climate Change will take place in June 2013, bringing together global leaders, activists and innovators to discuss environmental issues relating to the urban environment. The Board of Directors of the Metropolis organisation meeting will also take place in the city in July and the One Young World Summit, a global forum of young leaders which is expected to attract 1,000 delegates from every continent, in October.
 
The summits will “bring visitors from across the world and showcase the city’s opportunities for tourism, trade and investment”, according to Johannesburg’s Executive Mayor Mpho Parks Tau.
 
Acting CEO of Johannesburg Tourism, Phelisa Mangcu, said: “In association with stakeholders, our convention bureau continues with its sustained bidding efforts and there is no doubt that these are bearing fruit, contributing substantial economic benefits to our local industry.”
