Notably, tourism and motor vehicles were the two latest additions in the new IPP, which originally identified 11 priority sectors only.

Tourism was supposed to be listed in the Mandatory List because of the passage of the Tourism Act, which created the TIEZA (Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority) with the mandate to grant tax perks to developers of tourism enterprise zones (TEZ).
