Primarily, the Regional Tourism Associations would relate the industry’s concerns,
in relation to marketing, transportation and infrastructure, to the respective Government Entities.

The Regional Tourism Associations’ fundamental role to improve the Tourism Industry
appears to be lost in its tracks. Its transformation is found in a crowded landscape

engaged in perpetual reproductions of yet another, in different colors, "address list exercise".

Government’s Financial Support/Taxpayers Monies to these Associations has not changed
while Statistical Data indicate the deficiencies.
