France to Launch Investment Fund, Campaign Aimed at Boosting Tourism

France to Launch Investment Fund, Campaign Aimed at Boosting Tourism | Family friendly French Riviera | Scoop.it

France has held the title of world's most visited country for three-plus decades. But in an effort to welcome 100 million tourists by the year 2020, the country is planning to launch a tourism fund aimed at boosting its allure, according to Reuters.
"Tourism is a national treasure that needs to be protected, nurtured and developed - that's the aim of all these measures," said France's Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius discussing the Tourism Investment Fund, which will launch in the coming months.
The fund will be used to bolster accommodations and attractions across the country as well as to help get the word out about what France has to offer. 
But the efforts won't stop there. 
Officials are also prepared to begin a publicity campaign designed to encourage French citizens to be more welcoming to tourists. Discussing the attitudes of French natives toward foreign visitors, Fabius said that the "we have room for improvement here."

Launching a Tourism Investment Fund goes much deeper than financial support for accommodation and attractions.  I will be watching with interest French measures at encouraging not just citizens but existing businesses in welcoming tourists (and their €€)
