Cuba’s Tourism Minister, Manuel Marrero announced on Wednesday in Havana that the country will commemorate National Tourism Day every November 20th, starting in 2019 in recognition to all workers in the sector.
He explained during Wednesday’s televised Round Table program, that November 20th was selected because it was the day that the National Institute of the Tourism Industry was created. The Cuban Tourism Minister also explained on the outcome of the sector during this past year and its future projections.
Marrero highlighted that the Institute was marked with the Revolution’s intention of organizing and strengthening tourism development and recalled that the leader of the Revolution Fidel Castro was heading the institution despite his responsibility as Prime Minister at the time.
For this reason, he said, this is the date of revolutionary tourism and the sector will celebrate its 60th anniversary next year.
