The Secretary of State for Tourism, Dr.ª Ana Mendes Godinho, will be guest speaker at a lunch-debate on 4th April, where she will take attendees through the “365 Algarve Programme”, the plan for the 365 days of the year that includes actions to promote out of season tourism, and will also explain the financial support and incentives for foreign investors as well as for those who already live in Portugal.
With the vast majority of BPCC members in the Algarve having a direct or indirect reliance on tourism, and with seasonal fluctuations still being the region’s main concern, knowing exactly how government supports and promotes this sector is of vital importance to all working and living in this nationally important area.
Many studies suggest that there are ample opportunities to promote the region beyond it’s general perception as a “summertime' holiday destination. It’s business community continues to strive in promoting its year-round attractions. However, there is concern that the “Algarve voice” does not get the hearing it warrants in Lisbon’s corridors of power and that more could and should be done to assist this economically vital region for the good of Portugal as a whole.
