ABSTRACT
Reports that holidaymakers to the Catalan region are soon to be hit with a tourist tax have been denied by the Catalan tourist board's Great Britain director. The tax will only affect local Catalan citizens who will have to pay a levy similar to Britain's council tax. Fears were voiced in the British press that some kind of eco-tax was to be introduced, similar to a levy implemented in the Balearics. Catalonia wants to continue to be a major tourist destination in Europe, and the funding in tourist centres has to be increased so the infrastructure of the region can be improved.
