DCT Abu Dhabi holds second series of workshops

Published on : Tuesday, July 30, 2019

The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi continued its strategic support for the hospitality industry by holding a second series of workshops as part of the rollout for the ‘Ghadan’. The workshops hosted leaders from Abu Dhabi’s hotels to help bring the hospitality industry up to speed regarding application of new rules concerning collection of reduced Municipality fees and Tourism fees. The reduction in fees is part of a calculated plan to increase the appeal of the emirate for overseas visit.

 

Under the new rules, Tourism fees for hotels and restaurants have been reduced from 6 to 3.5 per cent, Municipality fees for hotels and restaurants from 4 to 2 per cent, and Daily Municipality fees for each hotel room from Dhs15 to Dhs10.

 

The workshops are also part of a wider programme of support organized by DCT Abu Dhabi for the hospitality sector, which includes regular Industry Development Committee meetings, and a forum for stakeholders to coordinate strategically across the emirate.

 

“The reduction of tourism and municipality fees is intended to enhance the Emirate’s international tourism competitiveness by strengthening Abu Dhabi’s value proposition, and encourage further investment in the hospitality and tourism sectors,” said Saood Al Hosani, Executive Director Support Services Sector at DCT Abu Dhabi.

 

The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi regulates, develops and promotes the emirate of Abu Dhabi as an amazing global destination, rich in cultural authenticity, diverse natural offerings, world-class hospitality and unparalleled leisure and entertainment attractions for every traveller.
