Tourism allocates 11.2 million euros in 2020 to support the sector and to stimulate demand

Tourist infrastructure in Tenerife

The Ministry of Tourism, Industry and Commerce has allocated a total of 11.2 million euros in 2020 to support the sector and to stimulate tourism demand. Minister of Tourism, Yaiza Castilla, announced Friday in the Parliamentary Commission, that tourist accommodation will have 4.5 million euros before the end of the year in direct subsidies for the adaptation of tourist spaces to the required protocols due to the health situation, also incorporating environmental sustainability and digitization criteria.

Another of the main lines of support is the Laboratory of Tourism Protocols, "a project to address health security issues related to the tourism sector, as well as tourism sustainability in the Canary Islands”, highlighted Castilla, who stated that in 2020 it has a budget of 1.1 million euros. Madrid and the Canary Islands will participate in the system of co-financing with the State and local entities, councils and city councils with 3 million euros for 2020.

Castilla also referred to the Tourism Infrastructure Program with which Tourism will promote lines of support for investments in the tourism sector in local administrations. On September 30, the department will issue a request for this year for 1,600,000 euros.

The Minister of Tourism concluded her intervention by noting that “the Council is about supporting investments aimed at adapting tourist spaces to environmental sustainability, digitization, accessibility, through direct support to local administrations. 

[NB: Bright folk and ex-accountants like me will notice that this only adds up to 10.2 million.]
