Ministry of Tourism: We stand by tourism unions on condition of preserving health of citizens

NNA - The Ministry of Tourism announced, in a statement this Wednesday that it stands by tourism unions and institutions of all kind, considering that 'their demand, which they expressed yesterday, is totally rightful in light of the difficult economic and financial conditions.'

The Ministry though called for 'avoiding the language of threat and harm to the state and its authorities,' noting that the alarm sounded by the tourism sector stemmed from a struggle that started even before the October 2019 uprising and ended with the catastrophic explosion at the Beirut port and the heavy losses inflicted on the tourism sector and its institutions.

The MoT emphasized that Minister Ramzi Msharrafieh will coordinate with the relevant authorities for the purpose of gradual reopening, provided that citizens' health and public safety are preserved after the rapid rise in the number of infection and deaths as a result of coronavirus.
