New Contest Promotes Wider Knowledge of Uruguay Tourism

MONTEVIDEO – Uruguay’s Tourism Ministry (Mintur) and its National Research and Innovation Agency (ANII) launched on Friday a contest aimed at promoting wider knowledge about all the nation’s tourism has to offer.

Through the 2017 Tourism Research Reports Contest, within the preexisting working agreement between Mintur and ANII, Uruguay seeks to enhance the academic studies already available on the subject.

That was explained during the contest launch ceremony by Tourism Minister Liliam Kechichian, who noted that while the country already has research projects on tourism, this new initiative takes on subjects of greater relevance for today’s market.

“That’s why we prioritize subjects that are currently boosting the growth of tourism in Uruguay and about which we have no studies,” the minister said.

Similarly, Kechichian noted the importance of subjects laid out in the contest, especially those from the work of Horacio Arredondo, one of the precursors of Uruguayan tourism, and which include tourist border crossings, youth tourism, and Uruguay as a second home for foreigners.

“Some people are surprised that tourism can be researched, but we believe it’s key if we want to keep growing – these works will be very important raw material for designing tourist attractions and establishing the public policies related to them,” the minister said.

The contest, open to interested professionals, technicians and students, offers a prize of 150,000 Uruguayan pesos ($5,241).

The research projects, which must be completed within the next six months, will be judged by a committee of individuals from Mintur and the leading public and private universities of the nation.
