12 views

On 2 December 2013, José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, went to Berlin, Germany, where he participated in the 17th Tourism Summit (Tourismusgipfel). In his speech, the President reminded of the mutually beneficial effects of tourism and European integration, and underlined in particular the importance of the four freedoms of the Single Market for a flourishing tourism sector. He also underlined the economic importance of tourism and its role as an indicator of the growth performance and consumer confidence. The President then draw attention to the fact that tourism resisted and was recovering from the crisis better than most sectors. He also recalled that the integration of markets to the benefit of companies and consumers, which was so crucial for tourism, was a continuing effort. José Manuel Barroso eventually recalled how the Commission aimed at fostering the competitiveness of the tourism sector by creating a favourable environment for enterprises and for cooperation among Member States.
