This Thursday 21, the Minister of Tourism, Tabaré Viera, held a working meeting with the head of Tourism and Sports of the Argentine Republic, Matías Lammens, in which they agreed to jointly promote visits to distant destinations. The extra-regional promotion of Mercosur and, in particular, of Uruguay, Argentina and Brazil, must be carried out in a coordinated manner, both leaders agreed.
The meeting, which was held in Montevideo, was also attended by the Argentine ambassador to Uruguay, Alberto Iribarne.
In dialogue with the Presidential Communication, Viera described the meeting as positive and affirmed that it will serve to continue planning and making joint work decisions. In this sense, both leaders agreed that the extra-regional promotion of the Mercosur destination and, in particular, of Uruguay, Argentina and Brazil, must be carried out in a coordinated manner.
Likewise, topics on air connectivity, infrastructure and regulations were on the agenda. The officials also discussed the border crossings and the facilities for tourists to travel to both countries. On these points, Viera acknowledged that there is much to improve.
Meanwhile, Lammens highlighted the historical, cultural and commercial ties, as well as the relevant exchange in tourism between both nations, and agreed with his Uruguayan counterpart on the need to advance in positioning their complementary destinations and jointly promoting others, such as the United States, Europe and Asia. Argentina contributes 60% of the tourists that our country receives. Presidency
