The holder of Culture and Tourism, Román Rodríguez, appeared in Parliament to give an account of the new features of his department for the management of the next Xacobeo2021. In this hearing he announced the upcoming implementation of a new system of classification by stars, depending on their quality and services, for rural tourism houses, a measure that is adopted within the framework of the Rural Tourism Strategy in which the Xunta is working.
According to the regional department, the implementation of this classification seeks to promote excellence and greater professionalism in this segment of accommodation, in addition to promoting its equipment with the rest of the tourist accommodation, betting on giving greater security to both customers and owners. “It is an initiative that seeks to increase the tourist offer with new experiences that add value to our countryside using their own resources,” said Roman Rodriguez.
The proposal is part of the initiatives announced by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism in recent months, such as the Plan for Improving Tourist Accommodation (MAT) or Galicia Tastes, the initiative that seeks to promote culinary tradition and local products, enhancing competitiveness and employment in the primary sector. With all this seeks the creation of new products and the construction of a diverse and quality tourism offer, through a model committed to cultural, socioeconomic and environmental that takes advantage of the resources of our country generating value throughout the chain and creating wealth and employment in all regions and municipalities where it develops.
