Zuma says tourism, trade to benefit from W.Cup

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South Africa’s investment in the Soccer World Cup will lead to increased tourism, trade and more investment after the country’s successful hosting of the sporting event, President Jacob Zuma said Monday.

“We are sure that the investment we have made will contribute to increased tourism, trade and investment. This will ultimately create new opportunities and bring in the revenue for us to address social challenges,” Zuma told a news conference.

He said South Africa was looking forward to years of long-term positive interest from people abroad after the month-long World Cup, which ended Sunday.
