Can tourism regain strength?
From now on, the tourism sector expects billions of euros in losses, whether in Asian, European or American countries ... this raises concern.Corona threatens to paralyze tourism.
Governments are supporting the tourism sector, some countries are taking measures to protect the tourism sector from collapse, such as: Singapore, Thailand, China, Australia, Malaysia and the Philippines, so they have started encouraging tourism inside the country, financial aid, and marketing campaigns to bring tourists from other regions to the country.
The tourism sector will not be able to start recovery until after the medical emergency is controlled and the travel ban decisions are lifted safely, and the longer this health crisis persists, the more difficult it will be for companies to stay and their ability to survive, especially small sized mid-size companies that make up A large part of the tourism sector and an increasing proportion of affected workers.Experts are concerned, as the latest statistics issued by the World Travel and Tourism Council indicated that this risk threatens about 50 million jobs in this sector around the world. It is difficult to predict when recovery will occur, but in the short term, governments and the private sector are taking measures to manage the crisis facing the tourism sector as much as possible.
