Tourism employers disapprove of checkups carried out by ITM inspectors

On Saturday, labor inspectors carried out checkups at the Tourism Fair organized in Bucharest at Romexpo to verify, among others, whether attending company representatives are bound by a labor contract, exhibitors have stated, as cited by Mediafax.
The results of the inspections will be made public later this week.
In turn, tourism employers’ associations have expressed disapproval of the inspections conducted by ITM inspectors at the Tourism Fair because, they argued, such measures give clients who come to the fair to purchase vacation packages the wrong impression that these professionals are criminals. “We, ANAT, entirely agree with ITM carrying out checkups, but we do not agree with being inspected on Saturdays, when the fair is filled with visitors who have to wait for inspectors to check upon travel agencies that only wish to serve their clients,” Lucia Morariu, president of the National Association of Tourism Agencies, stated. She went on to say she does not believe such inspections are solutions against tax evasion, and recommended that inspectors check the National Agency for Fiscal Administration (ANAF) for revenue contributions paid by tourism companies. In turn, Dragos Raducan, vice-president of the Romanian Tourism Employers’ Federation (FPTR), pointed out that so long as the event was approved by the National Tourism Authority, a state institution, inspections while the fair is ongoing are abnormal.
