Next week Adeje council hosts a week of events and talks examining the joint role of tourism and agriculture in the borough, the objective being to generate interest and debate in how to promote the local agricultural countryside as part of the tourism offer.
According to the councillor for rural development Esther Rivero Varga “Adeje has been working in this area for a number of years with, for instance, the opening of the Framers Market. The next step is precisely this – to examine the working relationship between the rural countryside and the economic motor that is tourism. We are clear about the aims – create synergies and establish zones and mutual platforms for business development and thus increase our tourism offer and experience for visitors.”
The courses and events are aimed particularly at those working in the tourism sector, guides and information personnel in tourism, those who have or promote rural overnight stays, and those in public administration working with the public. The organisers are members of the Tenerife Cabildo agriculture and rural tourism department with Turismo de Tenerife and the Adeje council. The course runs from September 21st to 25th and will also see participants taking parting in practical workshops with local experts away from the course base , the CDTCA, the Costa Adeje Tourism Development Centre.
