The hospitality industry in Romania keeps losing ground in front of the better offers from Bulgaria and Turkey. Still, the development of new businesses and the lesser gains of hotel owners may soon mean better conditions for tourists. The rest of the news keeps referring to Romanian web criminals, to Parliament and Government contradictory positions and so on...

Romanian hotel owners see their income decreasing. In Europe, things aren't a lot better, the income per room growing only 1.1% since 2007. In Romania, the lack of competition made prices grow, even above the average prices in important European cities. But, after reaching an average of 90.04 euro per room per night in 2006, the prices decreased to 87.62 euro in 2007, a study by Fivestar Hospitality indicates, as quoted in Evenimentul Zilei.

Meanwhile, Bulgaria and Turkey fight the battle for the best all-inclusive offers. At least 250,000 Romanians will spend their holidays in Bulgaria and 156,000 have already made reservations for charter flights to Turkey, Gandul reads.

Not only tourism agencies, but FBI agents as well have their eyes on Romanians, after the amount of Romania-born Internet crimes reached 1.5% of the total. The United States lead in the top, with some 63% of all crimes, followed by UK citizens - 15.3%, Nigeria - 5.7% and Canada - 5.6%, Evenimentul Zilei informs.

In what seems to be the good news of the day, the Bucharest city council may cancel the last decisions of former Bucharest Mayor Adriean Videanu, namely his approval for several office towers, 16 to 26 stories high, to be built on his land, Gandul found out.

Speaking of good news, the initiator of the year's most stupid law, the one forcing TV and radio stations to broadcast an equal amount of good and bad news, Senator Ioan Ghise, voted himself against the law. Well, the problem is that the draft was adopted and may soon come into force. The entire civil society gathered to protest against this attack against the freedom of expression, Evenimentul Zilei reads, adding that even Prime Minister Calin Popescu Tariceanu asked president Traian Basescu not to promulgate the law.
