The head of the Iranian Hospitality industry protested against not giving priority to employees in the tourism industry, especially hotels, in the corona vaccination.
Following the publication of the corona vaccination schedule based on job and age in the country, Jamshid Hamzehzadeh reacted to the neglect of the hospitality industry in corona vaccination.
He pointed out that there are many logical and compelling reasons to prioritize the hospitality industry employees; Among other things, the hotel staff is constantly dealing with different people.
They provide services to travelers who stay in hotels with any motive, including medical treatment, administrative missions etc.; That is, they live in a hotel for a certain period of time. These travelers should feel safe and concerned about the safety of the hotel and the health of their staff. It is clear that Hospitality staff should be the first to be vaccinated too.
The following is an open letter from the chairman of the board of directors of the Iranian Hospitality industry: Unfortunately, the government, as in other cases, made a short statement about the Hospitality industry. This shows that they do not care about the tourism industry, which they constantly support.
Contrary to what the government likes to pretend, it has become clear to us that tourism and the hotel industry are completely forgotten industries for the executive branch.
We used to say that if the government continues this trend, the situation will get much worse, but now it is clear that the government does not intend to stop the neglect of the tourism and hospitality industry.
Hamzehzadeh then stressed the need for tourism organizations to try to change this attitude in future governments: The future government should note that industrial tourism is the most important in upstream documents, including the development plan, and this is always in the statements of the highest official Has been emphasized.
