The Ministry of Tourism has released a package of laws in the public debate that will directly address the activities of the tourist board system. After more than two decades, this huge system will undergo significant changes, and the intention is to make new laws more effective and to encourage smaller tourist communities to join together in accordance with common interests.
The task of tourist boards will no longer be just advertising and promotion, but they will have to develop products and create new motives for the arrival of guests. Ultimately, the concept of destination management should come to life, as this will be the principle of system reorganization.
Tourist boards that spend more than 30 percent of their income on wages are to be abolished and will no longer be chaired by the mayor or the head of the local self-government unit.
