The Albanian Tourism Association has started the preparations for the new touristic summer season, with the aim to ensure an excellent performance of state institutions and private operators in touristic areas. In the framework of this, the ATA held an official meeting with Ministry of Tourism and Economic Development officials and tourism experts and the focus of their discussions was the compilation of short and long term measures regarding the tourism sector.
An important topic discussed was also the organization of the National Conference of Tourism, which will be organized for the seventh time this year by the Albanian Tourism Association in collaboration with operators in the tourism industry, whose activities are connected or established in touristic areas.
In the line of these preparations, the ATA will hold trainings and seminars in the field of “services and hospitality” for hotels staff, touristic agencies, bars and restaurants. The training programs which will be held on April also include the training of ATA’s staff and inspectors in the management and marketing fields. The trained staff will be certified by the American Hotel and Lodging Education Institute and will be held not only in Tirana capital but also in other cities throughout the country.
