24 million jobs and 1.3 trillion euros in revenues. This is what the European tourism sector may look like this year if more countries relax travel restrictions. Julia Simpson, president of the World Travel and Tourism Commission, presented this thesis at the meeting of tourism ministers in Dijon. Europe is at the tipping point of its return to normalcy. Economies must be open, and we must restore free travel, he adds.

As of March 15, seven countries around the world no longer required any health documents from travelers, in line with the recommendations of the World Tourism Organization and the World Health Organization.

The conference in Dijon was also attended by Zurab Pololikashvili, the secretary general of the World Tourism Organization, who appealed to EU governments for support for the industry, because he still needs it to be able to stand out from the competition. Pololikashvili also praised the restart plans that many EU countries have already prepared.
