João Fernandes, the current president of the Algarve Tourism Region has won the election to become the new president of the other regional tourism body, the Algarve Tourism Association, thus able to bring coherence to the objectives and efforts of the two organisations.

The contest was a stiff one with the Algarve Tourism Association’s current president, Carlos Luís, adamant that the boards should be run by two different presidents but a majority of the vote holders disagreed and the Algarve now can be promoted regionally and internationally in harmony.
