There is a post-war, was called "the ministry of Trade, Handicrafts and Tourism" under Mitterrand or simply "ministry of Tourism" under Chirac. But today, it is no more. While the crisis has hit the sector with full force, professionals demand the return of a ministry of Tourism full year.

"I am calling for the creation of a large ministry of Tourism inter-ministerial, asked this morning of the michelin-starred chef Gilles Goujon at the micro of RMC. Tourism, which represents 8% to 10% of the French GDP, "must be put forward," according to him. "We clearly had a lack of privileged interlocutors during these difficult weeks," concluded Gilles Goujon.Jean-Baptise Lemoyne acclaimed
one of The "privileged interlocutors" of the chief Gilles Goujon during this crisis has been Pascale Fontenel-Person, member-related LREM who had been entrusted by 2019 a mission on the social tourism by Edouard Philippe. It also calls for the establishment of the said ministry. "The tourism industry deserves, for it is the will of the entire profession," she said.
" twenty years ago, we had decided to entrust this mission to the secretary of State in charge of foreign Affairs, continues the mp. It was interesting because at that time we were looking to target mainly foreigners to come in France. But today the sector is a lack of interlocutors. Sometimes you should go to Bercy, sometimes to the secretariat of State for transport, sometimes with Culture... It's very complicated."
And Simon Thirot, the general delegate of the union Unat tourism, continued : "This Tuesday in the committee of tourism sector, all the unions in the sector have called for the creation of such a department, in recognizing the very good work done by Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne."

And why not with Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne at the helm : "It could be him ! It has proved in recent weeks that he had the talent.""giant Octopus"
The proposal does not harvest, however, not all the votes. And Alain Fontaine, president of the French Association of master restaurateurs, believes that the creation of a ministry dedicated to "is not the right solution". "Tourism is multiple and varied," he said. It is both the attractiveness of the country, so tied to foreign Affairs. But also a trade, therefore, linked to the ministry of Economy and Finance. And sometimes a cultural heritage. You can't put everything together and create a giant octopus which will go off in all directions. Each person has his area of expertise, and when we know which door to knock, it works well as well."The editorial team conseilleTourisme in France: the car, mode of transport privilégiéTourisme: Leboncoin defies Booking and AirbnbTourisme: Europe looks to finally in the season estivaleSujetsjean-baptiste lemoyneHôtellerieTourismehôtellerie full airrestaurationAucun comment
