Oudom Tat

first_img Najiba Ayubi Afghanistan Find out more Oudom Tat has taken an interest in journalism and photography ever since he was a boy delivering newspapers in Phnom Penh. After working for an NGO, he became a fixer for foreign reporters, especially those who wanted to cover land conflicts in the capital and provinces. In 2011, he joined Voice of Democracy, one of the few independent radio stations that dare to criticize the government. Working as a photojournalist, he covered many sensitive stories that the government would rather conceal, such as conditions for workers in Cambodia’s key garment sector, protests by people evicted from their land, or campaigns for land rights. As a result of his reporting and dedication, he has been threatened and attacked repeatedly since the start of 2013, both by unidentified men in civilian dress and government officials. Despite the danger, he is more determined than ever to promote justice and human rights in Cambodia.

A tourist tax is introduced for cruise passengers

first_imgOne of the questions was how to carry out the collection operationally, and Mayor Franković suggested that this be done through cruise agents, to whom the cities would issue invoices. The only doubt or open question is the collection of a fee per guest or per ship, provided that the ships would be classified into categories according to the number of passengers. Presenting the proposal, Minister Gari Cappelli explained that it is a matter of earmarked funds that would be invested in transport infrastructure to raise the standards of the destination. On the other hand, local governments could decide for themselves whether they wanted to introduce this fee and in what amount.  The port of Dubrovnik (506 visits) had the most visits of foreign cruise ships, followed by the ports of Split (242 visits) and Zadar (117 visits). The Ministry of Tourism is working on amendments to the Law on Tourist Tax, ie the proposal to collect the tourist tax for cruise passengers.  In the period from January to November 2018, foreign cruise ships realized the same number of voyages as in the same period of 2017. In the mentioned period of 2018, the number of passengers on these ships increased by 9,1%, while the total number of stays decreased by 6,5% compared to the same period in 2017 The mayor of the city of Dubrovnik, Franjo Franković, pointed out that this fee will certainly not deter anyone from coming to Dubrovnik. “The city and its citizens will certainly benefit, because with a fee of two euros per guest from the cruiser, a profit of around 12 million kuna could be made, which the City would invest in the roads in its area. It is also important to inform cruise companies in time so that they can calculate the new fee in the future price. ” Franović pointed out.

The remaining 19,0% of trips were made to the following counties: Zadar (6,3%), Istria (5,6%), Šibenik-Knin (5,0%) and Primorje-Gorski Kotar (2,1%). In 2018, a total of 677 cruises of foreign ships were realized The most visited seaports are Dubrovnik, Split and Zadar In the period from January to November 2018, 75 foreign cruise ships entered Croatian seaports, out of 677 cruises. There were 1,0 million passengers on these ships, who stayed in Croatia for 1 days. Representatives of cities and port authorities supported this proposal, and it was concluded that the implementation of this proposal could start in 2021. Source: CBSlast_img read more
