To restore the tourism sector, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism proposed four groups of solutions, including the restructuring of the tourist market; the development of new products and services and improvements to product quality suitable to each market segment; the promotion of public-private cooperation and regional linkage between localities; and digital transformation in tourism development.
