The recipes of tourism should rise 20%, in 2022, compared to 2019, reaching 22 billion euros, said the Minister of Economy, António Costa Silva.

“Portugal ended the year 2022 with 22 billion euros, which is absolutely extraordinary because, in one year, we not only recovered what we did in 2019, but also surpassed the results by over 20%”, said the minister in Portimão, at the Faro district.

When intervening in the closing session of the inauguration of the new Hotel and Tourism School (EHTP) of that Algarve municipality, the official recalled that tourism, “one of the engines of the development of the country’s economy, was highly plagued by the pandemic, almost paralyzed for two years, leading to a great demotivation” of economic agents.

“There were many people who said that to recover the numbers of 2019 it would take three, four or five years, but we managed to recover during the last year”, he underlined.

António Costa Silva stated that for Portugal to “achieve one of the goals of being the most sustainable destination in the world, one of the highest quality, “it is necessary to work together, developing collaborative networks”.

“If we build these platforms, if we have clear intentions, we can transform the lives of our communities, create wealth and align the country, tune the country with the future”, he pointed out.

In the opinion of the holder of the Economy portfolio, “there is still prejudice in the country in relation to tourism”, a sector that, he recalled, “is undoubtedly one of the fundamental pillars of our economic development”.

“We, at the Ministry of Economy, have a very clear vision about tourism: tourism is a tool to develop the country from north to south, including the autonomous regions [da Madeira e dos Açores]because it is capillary”, he noted.

In the same sense, he added, that tourism “is present throughout the national space and it is transversal, it mobilizes multiple sectors of the economy, from construction to transport, to a whole set of industries”.

“If we use this tool [turismo] in the proper sense, it is absolutely transformative”, he reinforced.

António Costa Silva also pointed to the quality of the new EHTP facilities as an “investment to train and educate people, given that investment in education is the most productive that the country can have”.

“The education […] it changes people and it is people who transform the world. We want to be the most sustainable destination in the world and this cannot be done without quality schools”, he said.

The new building of the School of Hospitality and Tourism of Portimão is an investment of 2.3 million euros by Turismo de Portugal that will reinforce the training offer in the region.

The new facilities are the result of the renovation of the former prison facility in Portimão, with eight classrooms equipped with the latest technology, two individual kitchens, an auditorium with capacity for 140 people, a bar and an ‘application’ restaurant, which will be open to the public.

According to Turismo de Portugal, digital equipment will facilitate “a hybrid teaching that combines face-to-face and distance training”.

The School of Hospitality and Tourism of Portimão is the third training establishment in the existing area in the Algarve, along with Faro and Vila Real de Santo António.

In addition to the Minister of Economy and the Sea, the Secretary of State for Tourism, Commerce and Services, Nuno Fazenda, and the President of Turismo de Portugal, Luís Araújo, participated in the inauguration, among others.
