Hospitality is the widest represented industry in EUROBAK. The key stakeholders include hotels, travel agencies, tour operators, restaurants, airlines and other service providers.
Aligned with the "Third Modernization of Kazakhstan: Global Competitiveness” specific emphasis has been placed on the development of inbound tourism and development of transit traffic of Eurasia via Kazakhstan.
The industry is labour intensive and therefore the growth of it provides the opportunity of creating a significant number of employment . While the momentum of the government is so strong, it is crucial that the professionals of the hospitality industry are engaged in the definition of policies and priorities representing the stakeholders that are to deliver the services and ultimately benefit from it.
With above objective in mind, the Travel, Hospitality and MICE (THM) Committee was established in 2017.
In the forthcoming period the Committee aims to:
- Increase awareness of the needs of inbound tourism and particularly MICE
- Align efforts of numerous agents acting independently for a more effective tourism promotion plan
- Work with the Government to engage with the tourism development strategy and closely follow up its implementation
- Ensure that non-value adding bureaucracy for the industry and foreign visitors is addressed and avoided
The THM works closely with the Prime Minister and the Cabinet, Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Ministry of Investment and Development, tourism associations and all agencies involved in the promotion of Tourism Development Strategy of Kazakhstan.
