South Africa recorded 13 percent growth in international tourist arrivals despite the economic slowdown.

Tokozile Xasa, the official responsible for tourism,  said the figures were achieved despite declining interest from the domestic front.

Xasa said the Department of Tourism wanted to focus on attracting an additional five million tourists in the next five years, as envisaged by President Jacob Zuma at the Tourism Indaba in Durban last week.
