  5. Portfolio Review 2008-2010 The most recent portfolio review was conducted in 2007, and produced the following portfolio for the period 2008 to 2010: Given that 60% of all arrivals to South Africa come from five neighbouring states, and that we enjoy dominant share in these markets, the strategy for SADC is principally a ‘defend strategy’ (i.e. retain existing tourists and extract additional value from them). Outside of SADC, however, there is scope to attract smaller high-end leisure volumes which in the long term provide opportunities for growth, especially from East and West Africa. For countries outside of Africa, the focus for South Africa is to leverage all the growth drivers – defend current share and aggressively pursue new growth opportunities. The overseas portfolio is focused on countries and markets that are the most attractive from a volume and value perspective, and from which South Africa can get the greatest yield in the short-to medium-term. In these markets our core challenge is to build awareness and positive perceptions of South Africa as a leisure destination, and to ensure that our information and sales strategies are able to follow through by ‘closing the deal’ and that the consumer travels to South Africa. It is against the different nature of the growth challenges in each of these domains that SA Tourism has invested in-depth market research in order to ensure that our marketing efforts are focused on the highest-yield consumer segments (who are interested and positive about our country), and against the drivers of growth that are appropriate in each chosen market. To date, SA Tourism has segmented most focus markets.
