Message from the IH&RA President

Dear IHRA member and friend :

We are facing this year a tremendous issues at our Hospitality industry worldwide.

WE ARE THE ONLY INDUSTRY THAT REDUCE THE POVRETY IN THE WORLD IN KEEP HIRING AND TRAINING OUR EMPLOYEES AND GIVE THEM DECENT COMPENSATION.

WE ARE THE ONLY INDUSTRY THAT BUILT HOTELS WHEN OTHER DESTROY THEIR LANDMARK.

Please join us, we need you, we need to keep united as it will be a great strength , we need to protect our Investments, to protect our guests, to protect our employees and protect our various countries.

We will work together in defining standards for Hotels and help association to do Hotels classification following these standards, we will fight Government to reduce taxes and VAT that should be one digit only (9% maximum). We will continue to work on Sustainable development and have more hotels to join our Emeraude Hotel Program.

I am always available for you to help when you need it.

Dr. Ghassan AIDI,

IHRA President,
