According to an official MINTUR statement on Friday, the first organization to run this sector was founded on November 20, 1959, then named National Institute of the Tourism Industry.

On the 60th anniversary of its foundation, in 2019, that date was established as the Day of Cuban Tourism, according to governmental decree 382.

This seeks to pay tribute to those people and institutions that support or take part in the development of this important Cuban economic sector.

The statement explains that, within the framework of the 62nd anniversary, MINTUR wants to acknowledge the work of all workers of this industry who have supported this nation during the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

These workers were part of over 200 brigades named after Elpidio C. Sosa (Revolution martyr)and worked in the red zones to fight this disease.

They also worked in the preparation of hotels and camp sites to turn them into isolation centers and to guarantee food, transportation and support for the medical staff, sparing no efforts or time.
