14/10/20 Tourism must be part of National recovery and resilience plans 

If it is not in the plan, it is not in the budget: the European Tourism Manifesto alliance, the voice of the European travel and tourism sector, urges European Union Member States to make tourism a strategic element in their national recovery plans in order to harness the potential of the sector to generate jobs and growth, and to reap the benefits from green and digital transitions

 

 

June 2020 NET calls on the EU to match its recognition of tourism’s significance with proper funding: recovery and long-term

During the immediate response to the crisis, the European Commission recognised that:

  • Tourism revenue had suffered a total collapse, just at the start of the season
  • Investment in the sector would not take place - Its ecosystem is dominated by SMEs and micro enterprises
  • This is what makes the tourism offer in Europe so diverse, distinctive and appealing
  • The losses are cross-cutting in impact, including transport, culture and rural economy
  • This crisis is different: demand has been drastically suppressed and travel discouraged
