Mediterranean Tourism Fair held in Tirana
The first Mediterranean Tourism Fair was held in Tirana.
The initiative organized by “Expocity” came several days after the government sent a bill to the Parliament to reduce VAT from 20 to 6 percent for the accommodation units.
In her address, Minister of Economy Milva Ekonomi said that the government decision is expected to boost quality.
Ekonomi stated that the tourism sector has been growing and just last year Albania received about four million and seven hundred thousand tourists.
Representatives of tourism associations and unions labeled the First Mediterranean Tourism Fair in Tirana as a positive initiative.
They demanded more investment, mainly in the field of education.
The fair was held on 8th and 9th April and the event was attended by about 120 tour operators.
The organizers of the event said that another similar fair is expected to be held in September, with a focus on the promotion of Albanian cultural values.
