The tourism development agency will soon be engaged in the tourism industry of Ukraine. It will become the central executive body, the main function of the new structure will be the implementation of policies developed jointly with experts, parliament and the government. This was reported by Ukrinform with reference to the words of the State Secretary of the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports of Ukraine Artyom Bidenko. “The creation of institutions that will help experts, the public, business, parliament, the executive branch work together will allow us to look ahead and see what the industry will face after 2030,” the official said.
Representatives of the tourism industry note that the creation of a new structure is really necessary. But it is also extremely important which particular powers will be delegated to the created agency.
“Of course, the tourism industry needs an executive body that could primarily carry out coordination activities to promote our country abroad, create a favorable media background in Ukraine and abroad, bring legislative initiatives in the field of tourism in line with the wishes and advice of specialists. Come up with nothing especially not necessary, there are obvious steps that need to be taken. If anything, we will tell you, the main thing is for us to be heard”, comments the executive director of the Albatros-Trevel Group Dmitry Tantsiura.
But at the same time, it is very important that the future head of the agency be ready for dialogue with the tourist community and the tourism industry, and higher authorities are interested in putting things in order in the incoming tourism, as well as in domestic and outbound tourism.
