The President of the Republic of Srpska Željka Cvijanović, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Srpska Radovan Višković and the Serb member of the BiH Presidency Milorad Dodik discussed today a support in the field of tourism and hospitality through the issuance of tourist vouchers, which will subsidize part of the accommodation costs of domestic tourists in tourist destinations in the Republic of Srpska.
At the meeting held in the Palace of the Republic, it was agreed that the programme was implemented through the Compensation Fund, in order to remedy the negative consequences of the corona virus epidemic, which occurred in these areas.
At the same time, this measure represents support to the citizens of the Republic of Srpska who decide to spend their vacation in domestic tourist destinations.
The interlocutors concluded that even in times of crisis, an opportunity should be found, not only for recovery, but also for additional strengthening and promotion of the tourist potentials of the Republic of Srpska.
This issue will be discussed again at the working meeting with representatives of tourist organisations and hoteliers from the Republic of Srpska, which will be held on Friday, May 22, at the Palace of the Republic.
At the meeting they also discussed the previously announced manner of support to the media and journalists, who in the previous period made a great contribution to informing citizens about the epidemic.
