Tourism Investment Masterplan: Projects of national interest and those of local importance. Objectives: vague and unquantifiable

de Mariana Bechir 14.8.2017

The Tourism Investment Masterplan, approved on Friday by Mihai Tudose cabinet, contains 29 projects of local importance and three of national interest and all of them will be made with money from the state budget and from local administrations’ budgets, not from EU funds.

Funding will begin in 2019, depending on the budget possibilities.

The government decision does not contain any cost estimate, mentioning only the proportions in which the state and local budgets will contribute to these projects.

The three investments of national importance are the only ones with the full financing from the state budget and will be implemented by the Ministry of Tourism, according to the government decision:

  • Development of the ski infrastructure, Fagaras Mountains (200 days with snow per year – Sustainable Development in the Fagaras Massif)
  • Balanced and integrated development of the tourist area of the Danube Delta and the Black Sea resorts, Sulina (Miniport/marina, Sulina town, Tulcea county)
  • Development of the tourist and recreation infrastructure – tourist port, Constanta (Planning the Diamant Port – recreational port, Constanta municipality, Constanta county)

Neither the value of these projects is specified.

How other funds will be allocated:

  • for investments made in the resorts of national interest certified according to the law, the contribution of the Ministry of Tourism is 90% and the contribution of the beneficiary administrative and territorial unit is 10%
  • for investments made in resorts of local interest, certified according to the law, the contribution of the Ministry of Tourism is 85% and the contribution of the beneficiary territorial administrative unit is 15%
  • for investments in the scope of this decision other than those referred to in a) and b) paragraphs, the contribution of the Ministry of Tourism is 70% and the contribution of the beneficiary administrative and territorial unit is 30%

Territorial administrations are advised that the failure to submit the technical and economic documentation by 31 December 2018 will result in the elimination of the project proposal from the Annex.

Masterplan developed in a record time – one month, together with the study on which it was based

The explanatory memorandum shows how the action directions for developing investments in tourism have been identified and then the Masterplan has been drafted in record time:

“In July 2017, at the request of the Ministry of Tourism, the National Institute for Research and Development in Tourism developed a study on the development of public investments in the Romanian specific infrastructure for the period 2007-2016 and the main directions for their development, based on which the directions of action for developing the investments in tourism have been defined. This document recommended a set of specific objectives, the achievement of which will have the effect of increasing the level of tourist services in qualitative and quantitative terms.”

Major actions covered by Masterplan for Investments

  • The development of health tourism
  • The development of the ski area
  • The development of the leisure tourism infrastructure
  • The balanced and integrated development of the Danube Delta tourist area and the Black Sea resorts
  • The development of the tourist infrastructure along the Danube
  • The development of the tourist infrastructure in the high mountain area

Masterplan objectives – very vague, unquantifiable

The explanatory memorandum contains a list of truisms, but no data about possible targets set:

  • Although at present the share of tourism in the gross domestic product is low both at the national and regional level (about 2-3%), it can be easily doubled in the medium term, even without expanding the tourist accommodation structure
  • The economic benefits of the tourism industry are multiple
  • The tourism industry generates a significant number of jobs and investments in this field have a relatively short amortisation period
  • Transportation and real estate are two other important sectors that can benefit from the development of tourism

The objectives listed in the government decision:

  • development of local communities in areas with high tourism potential, by increasing the public investment in the tourism infrastructure
  • competitive development of tourism by identifying, evaluating, prioritizing by forms of tourism and an efficient targeting of public investment
  • developing a network of internationally competitive tourist destinations
  • sustainable exploitation of the local specificity and national identity through tourism
  • identifying an integrated approach to the tourism policy at the regional level through the sustainable development of the tourism
