Spain’s third-largest industry is the tourism sector accounting for more than 10 percent of the national GDP. Last year, from January to July, 2.2 million Britons visited Spain, the largest number of any foreign country. However, in the same period of this year, the figure has massively dropped to just 378,000.
The Madrid-based Foundation for Applied Economics Studies has predicted that up to 70 percent of Spanish tourism jobs could disappear in the coming years.
The scheme from Benidorm is one of the many initiatives to protect these jobs by restarting tourism in the country. To ensure safety standards, a ‘Safe Tourism’ seal has been issued by the government’s tourism agency.
