TOURISM, TRAVEL AND LOGISTICS: LESSONS FROM THE PANDEMIC

With the gradual lifting of lockdown measures, borders in Europe have reopened and the tourism industry is hoping to partially recover lost ground.

In our first article this month, Patrizia Marin, international strategist, marketing and public affairs expert, takes a look at how we are travelling this summer, post-pandemic.

In the meantime, the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) published the guidelines to restart tourism, with the aim for the sector to emerge stronger and more sustainable from the COVID-19 crisis. As Zurab Pololikashvili, the secretary general of the UNWTO said: “Sustainability must no longer be a niche part of tourism but must be the new norm for every part of our sector.”

But the recent health crisis had a big impact also on logistics, as we read in the third article by Mattias Hedwall, Global Head of International Commerce & Trade, Baker & McKenzie International. He discusses how investment in technology and considerations on sustainability in the supply chain will be key.

Finally, we take a closer look at a report by the International Finance Corporation to better understand what the future of supply chains looks like.
