Winter Resort In Bulgaria Unprepared For Ski Season Opening

Pamporovo winter resort was unprepared for the upcoming ski season 2006/2007 opening, head of the State Agency for Tourism Mario al Djebouri said.

Construction in the resort was still ongoing, it was not cleaned and Chepelare municipality refused issuing a construction ban, al Djebouri said as quoted by Bulgarian National Radio.

Al Djebouri took part on December 11 in a forum on the development of tourism in the Smolyan region.

Continuation of construction works was only going to affect negatively tourists and the companies that were setting up buildings at the moment, al Djebouri said.

Bansko winter resort already announced a temporary construction ban, until city planning was finalised.

Once plans were ready, construction would be permitted only in certain areas. This was going to deal with random construction in Bansko, mayor Aleksander Kravarov said.
