WE WANT BUSINESSMAN TO ENTER IN NTO
Lajovic thinks that the Ministry of tourism has done a great job through regionalization of local tourist organizations, but he believes that with a new director the process of reorganization of National tourist organization will be sped up.
– Local tourist organizations with the Government should finish the forming of the organs of NTO. I believe that that will happen, because it is necessary that the tourist economy takes active participation in production of that program, in the presentation of the offer and appearances on fairs. It would be useful that in the management board and the Parliament of the new tourist organization we include businessman who are familiar with our needs – pointed out Lajovic.
