The European Commission has launched two new open consultations on tourism:
– Consultation on the European Tourism of the Future.
The main objectives of this consultation are better identifying the key challenges and opportunities for the European tourism industry and help revising, if necessary, the Action Plan for the sector adopted by the European Commission in 2010 (read it here).
If you are a tourism-related business, a business association, a trade union, a public authority at any level, an academic institution (or one of its members), a think tank or an NGO, you are invited to share your point of view by filling in this questionnaire and submit it before 15th March 2014.
– Consultation on Regulatory and Administrative Framework on Tourism Businesses, Public Administrations, and other Tourism Stakeholders in the EU
The objective of this consultation is to identify all the EU, national, regional and local policy initiatives and administrative practices where there still can be reduced the burden for SMEs, EU tourism destinations, public administrations and tourists visiting EU Member States from within or outside Europe.
All individuals and public and private stakeholders can take part on the consultation by filling this questionnaire and submit it before 15th March 2014.
