Problems in the tourism sector are already in the field of diplomacy, so the tourism sector expects the caretaker Minister of Tourism Stella Baltova to work in line with the caretaker Minister of Foreign Affairs. This was said to BNR by Polina Karastoyanova, executive director of the National Board of Tourism.

Karastoyanova pointed out that a new concept of presentation of Bulgarian tourism is needed, to clearly state that the Bulgarian tourist product is not marked by its cheap price but by its high quality. According to her, the businesses in the tourism sector have exhausted their financial resources, as the Covid measures themselves have cost them large investment. 

The tourist sector insists that the state should bear the costs of tests for tourists arriving in Bulgaria - antigen or PCR, it should also establish quarantine hotels and bear the costs of possible treatment, Karastoyanova explained.
