Two months into the new administration, the national tourism chamber is showing some impatience.
The chamber, the Cámara Nacional de Turismo, has scheduled a meeting today with Wilhelm Von Breymann, the Turismo minister, to express its concerns. The chamber said members want to know the role that the Instituto Costarricense de Turismo will assume on political issues and in national and international promotions of the country, it said in a release.
The chamber said that the tourism industry has been faced with uncertainty for the last few years due to the economic downturn, the dollar exchange rate, and contractions in the European market.
Pablo Heriberto Abarca, chamber president, said the tourism institute should defend the interests of the industry.
