Give Your Feedback on the European Commission Tourism Policy Communication 2010

16/11/2010 | 0 comments

EC Communication (COM2010/352final). Keeping Europe the world's top tourist destination is the objective of a Communication tabled by the European Commission on 30.06.2010.

With 370 million international arrivals in 2008, Europe has more than 40% of the global figure - a position which needs to be retained.

However the fast changing worldwide economy impacts on the tourism sector with some important changes concerning tourist behaviour and markets of origin.

While flagging challenges such as seasonality and an ageing population, the Commission document outlines a policy that aims at supporting this essential sector of the European economy and proposes initiatives to promote its competitiveness, its sustainable and quality-based development and the visibility of Europe as an outstanding tourist destination.

ENAT invites your comments on this policy document

Will this policy document deliver results for travellers with disabilities, seniors and other visitors who need inclusive, accessible tourism and travel possibilities in Europe? Will Europe be the leading destination for these visitors or will it become a quiet backwater, as other countries and regions move rapidly ahead?

Give us your views, so ENAT can present a constructive criticism of the Commission plan.
