Grey tourism.

More than 40 per cent of business in the tourism sector is undeclared and unaccounted for, according to the president of the Bulgarian Chamber of Tourism, Tsvetan Tonchev. In an interview with Focus news agency, Tonchev said that the Tourism Act has to be re-examined and re-evaluated, and the long-term strategy for tourism development has to be re-assessed, if the sector's grey economy is to be successfully tackled and controlled. Tonchev said that the bill should be amended to emphasise quality of service and customer satisfaction. Higher tax should be paid by those establishments who are reported to have poor and inadequate service standards, he said.
