Last week, on June 24, 2015, ETAG (European Travel and Tourism Advisory Group) President Henk Schüller delivered a speech at the event on Visa Package at the European Parliament. The event was organized by ETAG together with European Parliament Intergroup for Tourism and Culture & Tourism Task Force.
Tourism belongs to the most important pillars of the European economy and of European society as a whole. Tourism has enormous potential as a driver for further economic growth and for benefit in many sectors of life. ETAG has no doubt that tourism will get an extra boost after adoption of the visa package.
For these reasons ETAG strongly encourages Members of European Parliament to vote in favor of the proposed changes of the Visa code.
