The outlined five-year strategic plan encompasses all levels of associated sectors possible and practical. Effective coordination of plans between state and private institutions to stay ahead of the competition is one of the key aspects of the new plan. It also involves the insights of the smartest minds in hotel revenue management working in tangent with related stakeholders to discuss ways; hotels can optimize their pricing and service delivery in the face of an increasingly dynamic marketplace and industry challenges.
