Dear Members and Readers,
Today, I take pride in launching our new LHRA- download service for our members and the wider hospitality sector. The main objective of our new service is to increase the access to valuable information as this represents a key factor to running a successful business.
In particular our objective is to increase advocacy among our members. As a result, one of the focal point will be on disseminating national and international laws, decrees and regulations relevant to the hopitality
industry. Moreover, we will also circulate papers on industry standards since the quality of products and services is of crucial importance to running a competitive and sustainable businesses.
I am convinced that this new service will not only be beneficial to entrepreneurs, management staff and trainers of the hopitality industry but also to policy makers.
It is our aim to gradually develop this service. Therefore, I would like to all on all members of our association and visitors to our website, to help assist us in making this weblink a valuable service. I invite you to send us electronic materials addressing relevant topics of the hospitality industry which we can then upload to our website.
