The Minister of Tourism,  Ilin Dimitrov, awarded the Burgas Regional Tourist Chamber with an honorary plaque and diploma of the Ministry of Tourism on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the organization.

The distinctions are for overall contribution to the sustainable development of the region as a year-round destination for maritime and specialized tourism and empathy for the initiative to position and promote Brand Bulgaria. Minister Dimitrov took part in a solemn event dedicated to the chamber's birthday, which took place this evening in Burgas.

In his congratulatory words, he emphasized that 30 years in the service of the cause of Bulgarian tourism is by no means small. "I congratulate you because, in addition to protecting the interests and supporting the development of your members, for 3 decades you have been doing much more than that. BRTC has always worked in harmony with institutions and businesses, with the aim of improving the living environment and infrastructure, for environmental protection with the construction of treatment plants at destinations and the overall construction of a single ecosystem in tourism." With these words, the minister turned to the hosts.

He emphasized that the organization raises the image of the Bulgarian tourist product by fighting against the gray economy through its priorities - solving the problems with illegitimate tourist companies and unlicensed transport companies, carrying out joint control with the Consumer Protection Commission regarding the quality of the tourist product and regulatory acts in the field of tourism, close cooperation with local and state authorities, advertising and preservation of our cultural and historical heritage, etc. As a special emphasis, Minister Dimitrov pointed out the work of the chamber in the field of education and personnel development, following the trends in the digital environment, as well as the high international quality standards. He emphasized that the Burgas and Varna Chambers are fraternal organizations that are successful precisely because of the relationships they maintain - in his words, the most important are the relationships between people, and they prove it with their daily work, with their academic connections and with their work on building young professionals and future leaders in tourism.

 Minister Ilin Dimitrov offered special congratulations for the energy and dedication to the chairman of the organization, Delyana Tsoneva, and to the honorary chairman of BRTK - Ivan Ivanov, who has been the head of the Burgas Chamber for many years.

Burgas Regional Tourist Chamber started with only 38 members, and at the moment they number officially 105.
