Many of you have personally battled Covid infections and some have lost loved ones, colleagues and friends. Our sincere condolences to all who have suffered loss during these trying times.
Welcome all SAMPA members new and old to 2021, it’s been very busy at SAMPA HQ since January and looks set to get even busier as the year unfolds.
In order to ensure business continuity we trust that sense will prevail before more overly restrictive regulations close commerce once again, especially if we endure a 3rd wave of infections. We look forward to an accelerated vaccination program starting in April , thereby reducing infections and the vulnerability of Health Care and Essential Services workers, the elderly and infirm to the Covid virus.
It is also my sincere wish that the economy continues to recover and that travel and the hospitality sector regain their previous vigour, and that sometime in 2021 we can support our favourite sport and attend events once again.
