Tourism body guards BrexitOne of Ireland’s well-known tourism bodies has requested for a major increase in terms of government funding to work against the danger caused by Brexit.

 
The ITIC or Irish Tourist Industry Confederation has said that funding was lower than the level essential to maintain the share of Ireland in the British tourist market. The recent CSO statistics show a 7 percent decline regarding the UK tourists this year.

 

In its yearly tourism review released yesterday, ITIC brought to the forefront that the industry at present worth a record €8.7 billion to the economy.

 
Maurice Pratt, chairman of ITIC, and Eoghan O’Mara Walsh, chief executive, suggested for an increase in financial support in order to defend the number of British tourists. Maxwell Photography, one of the significant tourism bodies of the country has called for a major increase in terms of government funding to counter the risks imposed by Brexit. The ITIC is kind of an umbrella organization for thirty groups showcasing accommodation, attractions, transport, tour operators, ports, and airports, stated that yearly funding for tourism bodies was around €109 million when actually €180 million is required.
