Tourism jobs boost

THE hospitality sector has 10,000 new jobs – thanks to the Government's decision to reduce the rate of VAT.

Tourism promoter Failte Ireland yesterday published an analysis which illustrated that the reduced rate had a number of benefits.

It said direct tourism employment was up by more than 7,000 directly and 3,000 indirectly since the decision in 2011 to a reduced rate of 9pc VAT for tourism-related goods and services.
