Fee relief planned for Bahrain hotels
Manama, May 17, 2011
A five per cent fee levied by the Bahrain government on hotels could soon be frozen for three months as part of efforts to support hotels and revitalise the tourism sector hit by the recent crisis.
Culture Minister Shaikha Mai bint Mohammed Al Khalifa has given her initial approval to the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI).
“The measure will be submitted to the Cabinet for final approval,” the BCCI said following a meeting with the minister.-TradeArabia News Service
