Tour operators, travel agents and tour guides from the Future for Tourism Association rallied in front of the parliament building in Sofia. They call for a clear commitment of the government to financial assistance, providing liquidity to companies and restarting the sector, as well as tourism without a mandatory requirement for PCR tests.

Carrying posters "SOS tourism! We want to work", the tour operators pointed out that they are waiting for the promised program to save the sector.

Yesterday, Prime Minister Boyko Borissov announced that about 5 million euros would be allocated to help tourism. However, according to industry representatives, this assistance is not enough.
