Travel and Tourism Industry | ECA
The tourism sector is among the most affected industries by the coronavirus crisis. The UNWTO estimates that global international tourist arrivals are declining by 20-30 %. The unemployment in the sector is contantly growing. As presented by Antonio López de Ávila for the Spanish tourism cluster Turisfera in the meeting on 6 May, the sector faces the big challenges: reopening of borders, regaining the trust of the travellers, and reducing uncertainty. Safety will be the main concern for the future development of the sector.
