IRU calls for swift agreement on EU visa code

17 Oct 2016

IRU supports ambitious, cooperative and business-friendly tourism policies, allowing tourism, and in particular group tourism by coach, to prosper and to serve citizens and visitors with safe, sustainable, affordable and high quality services for all. 

IRU, as part of the Network for the European Private Sector in Tourism (NET), is calling on the European Parliament and the Council to come swiftly to an agreement on the new EU Visa Code negotiations. Tourism in the EU is the region’s third biggest economic sector accounting for more than 10% of its GDP according the European Commission.
