More importance should be given to certain factors as the tourism industry grew. These include the environment, culture, the historical heritage and natural resources, Mr Vella said.

 

Sustainable tourism should be considered in the light of tourism product improvement, he added, a point shared by Mauro Marocu, excutive head of the council.
