Impacts of COVID-19 on Tourism Industry

The survey was aimed at assessing the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the industry.

Overall, the tourism industry contributes over K0.5 billion to the nation’s economy every year.

The survey found it will report far short of that this year.

A total of 44 respondents including hotels, tour operators, guest house owners, industry associations, airlines, product owners, and parks participated in the survey, which revealed massive losses they suffered in key areas of their businesses.
