After the closing ceremony of the 4th Ibero-American Summit on Accessible Tourism, held for three days at the National Hotel, mr. Marrero pointed out that it is a new attempt to defeat the Cuban Revolution and the country’s efforts to come out well, as well as its example and experience in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We are open to tourism and to the world, a poor Third World country that when it could not count on anyone’s help it decided on defending its sovereignty, and thanks to our leader Fidel Castro it has made a great progress on science and technology, and was able to create five candidate vaccines, three of them already authorized to fight Covid-19, as more than 84% of the Cuban people is fully vaccinated,” he said.
Marrero stressed that under such conditions, with required measures and protocols and the guarantee of controlling Covid-19, Cuba´s international tourism reopened, so now the US media hype is to discredit Cuba´s quality of hotel services and category of facilities.
In this regard, Mr. Marrero said that ahead of this new campaign, he hopes the US website: TripAdvisor, which provides information on travel and international tourist reference, will not provide for this purpose and that professionalism be important in the face of such a claim.
He warned media hype will be also fought and won because we have convictions, and this view bears witness to the fact that Cuban tourism will be promoted and that the whole world notices that it is an industry defended by the people.
Our tourism is done with sacrifice, it is competitive, marked by professionalism, humility and simplicity of workers who make holidaymakers feel at home.
