NIJAR businesses are working towards obtaining the SICTED Spanish tourism destination quality stamp.
Representatives from municipal enterprises, including hotels, campsites, rural accommodation, restaurants and dive centres, joined council staff and advisors for this week’s local-authority organised SICTED-orientated training sessions.
The council said the sessions are the first step towards gaining the SICTED distinction. Welcoming the 30 or so participants to the inaugural session, Mayor Esperanza Perez underlined the importance of reinforcing the quality of tourism in the municipality.
“This government team is convinced about the importance of a sector like this, and for that reason it is essential to continue supporting our businesses, making available to them as many tools as necessary so that our destination remains an international reference point”, the Mayor commented.
“We are aware that the sector is moving forward at this time, and Nijar wants to be part of this transformation, driving an intelligent and sustainable tourism of excellence”, she added.
The next step towards qualifying for the SICTED stamp will be “Individualised Technical Assistance” for each company: a self-evaluation system to help in checking companies’ quality control in all areas, from legal to data protection systems.
