    Canatur indicated that entrepreneurs held a meeting last October with presidential candidates and representatives of political parties, to expose the urgency of greater government commitment to tourism and listen to their proposals.

    According to the vision of Canatur, tourism benefits that need to be addressed for the country over the next 10 years are improving the experience offered to its customers, environmental sustainability and “eco-efficiency” of its operations.

    Employers noted areas of improvementsuch as communication with the government, controling the dollar exchange rate, infrastructure development, a convention center, public safety, attracting new airlines and developing an official information system official of statistics, among others.

    The initiative is supported by the Costa Rican Chamber of Hotels (CCH), the Costa Rican Association of Auto Annuitants (ACAR), the Costa Rican Chamber of Restaurants and Related (Title Co.), and two regional chambers for tourism.

    Tourism is one of the main engines of the Costa Rican economy, because in 2013 it generated revenues of approximately $ 2.3 billion with the visit of 2.34 million foreign tourists. (ACAN-EFE)
