subsectors in the Tourism industry;

III. Identify limitations and challenges currently associated with accessing
incentives during and after the application process;

IV. Obtain recommendations regarding the way forward on strengthening the
legislative framework.

In order to ensure contribution from a wide cross section of the tourism industry,
representatives of key subsectors (accommodation, sites and attractions, food and
beverage, touring, taxi, Destination Management Company’s [ DMCs], Car Rentals, Car
Rentals, Marine Sector, Wedding Planners, Photographers, Health and Wellness
operators) will be present on specific days to provide information relevant to their

the identification of key policy recommendations to strengthen the current legislation
and a wider range of fiscal benefits available to operators.
