Hoteliers 'disappointed' at Department merger

The Irish Hotels Federation has expressed its 'deep disappointment' at the lack of a dedicated government Department with sole responsibility for tourism, Ireland’s largest elaina0320indigenous employer.
 
IHF President Elaina Fitzgerald Kane called on the Government to put tourism at the top of its economic agenda, stating “we are shocked and deeply disappointed that tourism has been placed in a six- faceted portfolio and not part of an economic and dedicated tourism ministry. We would have expected tourism to have been included at least within an economic or business portfolio or had its own ministry, instead of being part of a multifaceted portfolio. This is a time when commitment to tourism should have been strengthened and not diluted.”
The mayor of Killarney has called for a review of the decision “to lump tourism” in with five other Government Departments and says the tourism sector deserves its own minister.

 

“It is bitterly disappointing that Tourism has not been given proper recognition and it is shocking to see Tourism thrown with five other Government departments”, Cllr Brendan Cronin, Ind, the newly elected mayor said.
 
“Our industry is in the midst of a devastating economic crisis, and it is essential that everything possible is done to address the severe challenges we face and safeguard the livelihoods of the almost 270,000 people whose jobs are supported by tourism. 70% of these jobs are based outside of Dublin so the regional economic and social impact is enormous. This requires an urgent policy response and we are committed to working closely with the incoming Government and Minister Catherine Martin to ensure tourism is not left behind.”
