With Ireland’s General Election to be called very soon the Irish Tourist Industry Confederation, in association with Ibec, has launched its tourism manifesto which sets out the industry’s key priorities for any incoming Government.
Although tourism has performed strongly in recent years and is now worth €7.3 billion annually, future growth cannot be taken for granted. It is vital that any new Government helps address a number of key areas; staying competitive, product investment, capacity challenges, and destination marketing. ITIC is confident that recent successes can continue and the industry can deliver sustained economic growth and employment throughout the country, but only if the right Government policies and investment strategies are pursued.
