(MENAFN) The Hotels Owners Association head, Pierre Ashkar, stated that the discharge rate of part-time employees at Lebanon's hotels reached 20 percent as the country's tourism faced a big threat by the absence of government as well as the uprisings affecting Syria, reported The Daily Star.

Ashkar also said that due to the same reasons, Lebanon's 2011 Q1 average occupancy fell to 27 percent of that of last year. He pointed out that tense atmosphere created by the turmoil in the Arab world did not give any good signs for Lebanon's tourism.

The head added that hotels hire a lot of part-time employees to fill gaps during conference times and high seasons, but those employees had to be laid off to reduce hotels' expenses at such hard times.

It is worth noting that Ashkar explained that forming a cabinet in Lebanon would save the country's tourism as it would boost the confidence of tourists both Arab and foreign.
