In 2020, the company will continue to move towards good and sustainable growth with further improvement in customer service, fair margins and partner experience.”

Spain, he added, is a “very mature market,” and “Oyo's business vision and technological prowess are ideal for a large number of independent hotels that may have the advantages of being under a large chain but without losing control of and decision-making power for their hotels.”
