On the 25th, it will be the turn of the PRT to be discussed with the managers and entrepreneurs of the Circuito Lago de Furnas, a tourist region formed by 10 municipalities to know the MTur strategies in Paraguacu (MG). Ana Carla stressed that the presence of municipalities in the Brazilian Tourism Map, which is being updated in the states, is fundamental for the destination to integrate the PRT through a tourist region and can receive resources for projects registered in the Government Agreements System (Siconv), as well as financing for public and private managers through Prodetur + Turismo and the General Fund for Tourism (Fungetur).

The Cadastur, which brings together tourism service providers such as lodging, agencies and tourism guides, is another program that facilitates access to funding and the presence of municipalities in the new map, the whose updated version will be released in the second half of this year . “It will be an opportunity to discuss partnerships and participation in MTur programs related to attracting investments, access to credit, registration and inspection of tourism service providers, regional tourism planning, events, infrastructure and structuring of tourism products,” said Thayse de Castro, president of the Furnas Lake Tourist Circuit.

Ana Carla Moura stressed that these meetings aim to build and agree partnerships for joint and integrated action between governance bodies, responsible for tourism regions, PRT interlocutors in the states and the Ministry of Tourism. “Our purpose is to improve the interlocution, the experiences of the tourism sector and to address bottlenecks presented on these topics of great interest for the development of Brazilian tourism,” he said. She also stressed the importance of the TRP to the tourist regions and destinations where tourism, in fact happens.
