The South African Woolworths must be completely, completely different to the Woolworths that exists in Australia/Britain.

(Well, technically it doesn't exist in Britain anymore, but it did....)

Our Woolworths is an upmarket retailer partnered with Marks & Spencer. Similar quality, similar packaging, similar concept.

True but ive noticed with many of the stores that the "old logo" is still used; especially when it comes to the stores sign. This is even seen at the V&A

Woolworths in South Africa is related to Country Road in Australia and Marks and Spencer in the UK. If I am correct Woolworths in South Africa actually owns Country Road and do have an active cooperation agreement with Marks and Spencers that prohibit MS to be active on the African continent and Woolworhts to compete with MS in Europe. The only place where they actually compete will be in Dubai.

Cape Town has won another major travel industry award, reaffirming the city’s status as one of the world’s top tourism destinations.

The city was declared Africa’s Best Travel Destination by World Travel Awards at a gala dinner held in Johannesburg yesterday, 7 July 2010. This is the third consecutive year that the city has won this prestigious award.

In November last year, Cape Town won the 2009 Virgin Holidays Responsible Tourism Award in the Best Destination category.

The World Travel Awards, which were established in 1993, are seen as the travel industry’s ‘Oscars’. The awards are regarded as one of the best endorsements for a travel product.

Alderman Felicity Purchase, the City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee Member for Economic Development and Tourism and Mansoor Mohamed, the City’s Executive Director: Economic, Social Development and Tourism received the award on behalf of the city.

“This recognition is very important as it reaffirms Cape Town’s global positioning as a highly attractive tourism destination. The city boasts one of the highest concentration of major events on the African continent which includes the Cape Town International Jazz Festival, the Argus Cycle Tour, the Two Oceans Marathon and Design Indaba. The City of Cape Town will continue to use major events to attract visitors to Cape Town. Mega events such as the 2010 FIFA World Cup are valuable for legacy projects whereas major events provide the annual recurring benefits,” said Mohamed.

Alderman Purchase said: “Cape Town is reaping the benefits of establishing and maintaining an excellent tourism infrastructure. The City of Cape Town is constantly enhancing the city’s tourism assets and we are building skills and improving opportunities in our tourism sector. All of these efforts support the City’s key strategy of infrastructure-led economic growth.”

Does anyone have any info on a new, realigned runway is expected to be built at Cape Town International Airport, after the World Cup? I am looking for the details of the professionals (consultants) who may be involved with this project? I believe it is still very early days.
