World travel has slowed dramatically since the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus. The tourism and hospitality industry all over the world have been heavily impacted. From a UNWTO perspective, best case scenario, we are looking at a 58% downturn this year and worst case 78% in international travel.
How do we see the travel industry opening up again? With 90 million people travelling domestically during Labor Days, China has been the first country to see the opportunity to ease up. Domestic travel in China is expected to grow 60% this year, compared to 47% last year.
What does China’s tourism industry look like now? What can we learn from the global travel halt? Which trends will be shaping the future of travelling? To answer these questions, the Belgian-Chinese Chamber of Commerce (BCECC) would like to invite you to our webinar on “Post-COVID 19 Travel Industry in Europe and China” on December 3, 2020 at 10.30 CET (17.30 CST).
