May 22--BUCHAREST -- The business environment is expected to get involved, through a working group designated by representatives of the industry, in promoting Romania as a tourist destination, the National Authority for Tourism /ANT/'s Interim President Mirela Matichescu told AGERPRES on Thursday.
"We want to have, starting June 2015, a proposal of working group from the tourism industry. Thus, a number of 5 to 7 representatives of the private sector may get involved with proposals and projects to promote Romania, to the extent to which the ANT will have the funds. I want to discuss concrete projects with this working group to attend also the meetings for preparing the Tourism Advisory Council assemblies. We believe that in this way we will put to good use the experience and resources of some people experienced in tourism and present the Advisory Board members projects and initiatives that are based on the views of industry representatives," Mirela Matichescu.
The Tourism Promotion Associations' Federation (FAPT) has requested, through its members, the Regional Tourism Development and Promotion Associations, the establishment of the Romanian Tourism Organization as a public-private partnership, in line with the draft debated by the Coalition for Romania's Development. On this occasion, FAPT President Corina Martin, said that the public-private partnership "is the best solution to promote Romanian tourism, compared to the current organization form of the National Authority for Tourism."
The ANT management say they are open to dialogue, exchange of experience and even wish to compare the selection methodology and the ways to evaluate the results of the campaign carried out by the Authority with those organized by the federation represented by Corina Martin.
