As borders reopen, tourism industry hopes for boost

FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “As borders reopen, tourism industry hopes for boost” – below is their description.

The global travel and tourism sector lost $4.5 trillion and 62 million jobs in 2020. Some countries are beginning to reopen their borders to vaccinated foreign tourists and hoping for a strong summer season. Virginia Messina, Managing Director of the World Travel and Tourism Council, believes vaccines will help the industry recover but are not the only solution. “Everyone should be able to travel,” she told FRANCE 24, but consumer confidence has been undermined by a lack of consistency in international regulations.
