Reviving Tourism amid the COVID-19 Pandemic

Publication | September 2020

This brief explores how governments could help revitalize the important tourism sector in Asia and the Pacific amid the challenges of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

The brief analyzes options for phased tourism recovery plans: first promoting domestic tourism and then negotiating travel bubbles as stepping stones to a fully open regime. Bilateral travel bubbles with preferred partners could be expanded into subregional arrangements. The analysis shows that in about half of the economies in the region domestic tourists could replace a considerable portion of international visitors. Greater regional cooperation could help promote tourism in a harmonized way.
