Georgian Business Ombudsman Addresses Third Tourism and Hospitality Conference

Business Ombudsman of Georgia Irakli Lekvinadze has delivered a speech at the Third Tourism and Hospitality Conference.

In the panel „Challenges and Opportunities in Tourism & Hospitality Industry” the Business Ombudsman talked about business climate in Georgia’s tourism and hospitality sector.

«We are key mediators between business sector and governmental offices. In case of any miscommunication, we engage in the process and maximally lobby any reasonable business interest.

I would outline important issues that the tourism industry names at this stage such as staff qualifications, regulation of construction projects, purchases and communication with population, determination of wastes management norms and introduction of certain seasonal components in property mandatory insurance. We believe, in case of valuable mediation and lobbying, any reasonable issue raised by the industry will be definitely resolved, because all governmental offices show full readiness», Irakli Lekvinadze said.
