Juan Orlando Hernández request National Congress to allow incentive on tourism

Published on : Sunday, July 23, 2017

Juan OrlandoJuan Orlando Hernández, Honduras President requested country’s National Congress this week to support the Tourism Incentives Act. This legislation would be the result of 250,000 new jobs by the year 2019 as part of Honduras’ 20/20 growth plan.

 
To quote Hernández, “Honduras is becoming a highly desirable destination for tourists. This new legislation would provide $165 million USD in tourism incentives over 18 years — an investment set to generate about a quarter billion dollars for Honduras.”

 
Lately, Honduran Tourism Institute Director Emilio Silvestri met with Mauricio Oliva, National Congress Speaker and with other tourism sector representatives to talk about the legislation at the Legislative Palace in Tegucigalpa.

 
Tourism industry tax incentives, financial support in terms of land and air travel to Honduras and funds to boost lodging options in the nation over the next 10 to 15 years comprise the act. The Honduran tourism industry is quite balanced to take off. Ever since the year 2015, the number of stayover visitors to the country has increased by 4 percent, and international tourism spending is on the rise as well. In 2016, 14.7 percent more passengers arrived to the country through cruise ship in comparison to 2015 respectively.

 
To quote Olivia, “Congress will not fail them. We are going to proceed with the responsibility and commitment this country needs.” “Honduras has enormous growth potential,” Hernández stated. “This legislation will be a turning point for Honduran tourism.”
