The anniversary, which advocates for inclusive growth this year, the UN called for a tourism recovery that helps to recovery and progress, but it is pivotal that benefits are distributed widely and fairly.
To illustrate the impacts of the pandemic in tourism sector, it was reported that in the first five months of this year, international tourist arrivals declined an alarming 95% in some parts of the world, and it is estimated that by the end of 2021 there will be produced a loss of over $4 trillion in global GDP.
Covid-19 vaccination inequality is another determining factor in tourism and reported that losses are reduced in most developed countries and deepen in developing nations, where the shortage of immunizations keeps tourists away, said the UN.
In its message, the UN stressed that in addition to the pandemic, climate change seriously affects many of the main tourist destinations, particularly the small island developing states, whose economies depend 30% on tourism.
