The Minister of Tourism and Sports, Matías Lammens, will attend the inauguration this Thursday with the presentation of Actions by the hotel industry to recover tourism, by Josep Brichs, Commercial Corporate Director of the Barceló Hotel Group for Latin America.
“These initiatives show us the importance of making efforts between different countries to mitigate the social and economic impacts of the pandemic. It is a great contribution for our sector to be able to receive the experience that tourism companies from two of the leading countries in inbound tourism are living, such as Spain and Portugal, in the stage of quarantine exit and easing of borders. The objective is to prepare ourselves with all the tools at our disposal to preserve employment, boost the sector and make tourism once again a great driver of the economy in the next stage, "says Lammens
For his part, the Executive Secretary of INPROTUR, Ricardo Sosa, describes that "" The day after "is a knowledge transfer program for municipalities, provinces, hotels, travel agents and national tourism guides. With these actions we provide very good testimonies and enhance the possibilities of Argentine tourism. "
Important launches have already passed, such as the digital campaign #viajadesdetucasa, the development of webinars or the Conjuncture Reports, among others. Far from stopping, INPROTUR bets for more and convenes the national trade to provide greater and better tools in search of hierarchizing its work.
