Czech Republic: Food Service - Hotel Restaurant Institutional

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The Czech Republic welcomes annually over 26 million tourists, out of which 8 million stay in hotels and bed and breakfasts. The biggest attraction is the capital city Prague. Most tourists come from Germany, the U.S., and Slovakia. There are several U.S. hotel chains, restaurants chains and one big catering company. At the moment the biggest issue in the HRI sector is the proposal of legislation for electronic evidence of payments. Right now it is in the Parliament and if passed, many smaller restaurants, especially in the countryside, would go bankrupt and prices in the whole sector would go up.
