FAEVYT issues statement for increase in the exchange rate for tourism
"Punishing tourism by making trips abroad more expensive is not understanding the operation of an industry that generates jobs in every corner of Argentina," said Gustavo Hani, president of the federation
From the Argentine Federation of Associations of Travel and Tourism Companies (FAEVYT) that represents the more than 5,000 Argentine travel agencies, they expressed their concern at the announcement of the increase in the tourist dollar.
“Punishing tourism by making trips abroad more expensive is not understanding the operation of an industry that generates work in every corner of Argentina. With this new measure we are talking about a 75% tax burden for those who want to travel who, as we are tired of repeating, do not only do it for pleasure but – in many cases – out of obligation or necessity: work, sports, cultural trips , scientists, for health reasons, etc".
"It is unfortunate that the same measures that have already been proven to bring no solution to the fiscal imbalance and insolvency of the State continue to be applied."
"Once again the rules of the game are changing for us, it is impossible to work without stability, tourism needs planning and clear rules," said Gustavo Hani, president of FAEVYT.
