GolaPrystan defines objective for 2015
The 11 of December the first working meeting of GolaPrystan’s the Local Development Group (LDG) was held. The LDG was formed in October 2014 during the Dialogue of Partners and consists of representatives of local authorities, NGOs and activists.
On the meeting the LDG members discussed different problems of the region and defined the one, which all of experts consider as the most important – low flow of tourists with a large tourism potential of the town.
Analyzing the causes of the problem, the participants of the meeting identified the following ones:
1. Potential tourists are not aware about recreational opportunities in the town (little advertising, , poor administration of the site, which is rarely updated)
2. Narrow range of services offered. To expand the list of services it is not enough money and professional staff. And there are no conditions for training the staff in the tourism sector.
3. There is no segmentation of the services market: priority groups of tourists are not identified.
On the meeting the LDG has started working on to find a solution of the problem. Also the objective of a future project and work in 2015 was defined: to increase the number of tourists in the season from 1 thousand. up to 4 thousand. people.
