COVID-19 Cost Tourist Industry $320 Bln in the First Five Months

UNITED NATIONS – Devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic, the global tourism sector has suffered losses of up to the $320 billion in export earnings in the first five months of 2020, the United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Tuesday.
The UN chief said in a policy brief and video speech that tourism is the third-largest export sector in the world economy, after fuels and chemicals, and accounts for 7% of world trade in 2019.
Tourism export earnings could fall from $910 billion to $1.2 trillion in 2020, which could reduce global GDP by 1.5 to 2.8 percent.
Meanwhile, at least one in ten people work in the tourism sector, whose livelihoods are now threatened by the pandemic.
Guterres said in the briefing that at least 120 million jobs were at risk since the global epidemic.
Apart from the economic losses, the UN chief said the recession in income from tourism could also lead to an increase in poaching in nature reserves while even risking protecting cultural relics.
“The closure of many World Heritage sites has deprived communities of vital livelihoods,” said Guterres.
The secretary-general said that tourism, in addition to boosting economies, “also enables people to experience some of the world’s cultural and natural riches and brings people closer to each other, highlighting our common humanity.”
He called on the world to rebuild tourism while protecting communities, but also mentioned that the recovery of the sector would depend very much on the development of the pandemic and the global economy.
