Tourism first of all means investments in infrastructure, Hellvig says

Regional Development and Tourism Minister Eduard Hellvig stated on Friday during a press conference in Bistrita that the biggest problem is that at government level tourism was treated only from the point of view of promoting it. “In other words, we promoted Romania, we promoted a resort. The citizen saw something on TV, came here, but discovered the locality without road infrastructure, without drinkable water, without hygienic conditions, so next time you’ll engage in promotion for naught because he won’t come here anymore,” the Minister explained. Eduard Hellvig believes that until now there was a lack of dialogue between the ministry he leads and tourism industry representatives, something that led to failure to capitalize on important components such as balneary and cultural tourism.Likewise, in his opinion tourism first of all means investments in infrastructure. “I’m talking about rehabilitating access roads, rehabilitating the resort’s internal infrastructure and the third component, which I’ve already discuss at the level of experts, the public-private partnership. Because this industry’s big problem is that there is no direct cooperation, through the policies being made at the ministry’s level, with the tourism industry.”
