Today ITIC launch a campaign to secure much needed support for Ireland’s tourism and hospitality industry as we head into a long and difficult autumn and winter period. The aim of the campaign is to both highlight the deteriorating situation facing tourism businesses and employees and crucially to set out the key asks that industry need implemented to secure our future.
As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic Irish tourism and hospitality is facing an enormous crisis and is facing widespread job losses and business closures particularly in regional Ireland. It need not be like this.
The Irish Tourism Industry Confederation (www.itic.ie), representing tourism and hospitality business, is calling for urgent Government support to secure the sector’s future. Tens of thousands of jobs can be saved if the right Government action is taken urgently, action that includes safely reopening international travel, protecting employment, providing grants, and reducing tourism Vat rates.
