Overstrand Municipality’s Executive Mayor, Dr Annelie Rabie, was interviewed by China Global Television Network (CGTN) this week. Interest in the region was sparked by a visit from the network’s South African correspondent, Julie Scheier, in 2021. The impact on the hospitality sector was obvious then and a follow-up was required to see how the Overstrand has managed recovery. Another subject covered during the interview related to the trend of digital nomads who prefer to stay in the Overstrand rather than in big cities.
CGTN made use of the time in the Overstrand to investigate a further story relating to the impact of the changing economy on property prices. Mayor Rabie used the opportunity to announce the Overstrand Municipality’s Investment Conference that will be hosted on 23 and 24 June 2022 and said, “online registrations for this event is open and investors are invited to attend”.
