France has lost tens of billions of euros due to restrictions in the tourism sector

Currently, the tourism industry in France is kept from the final collapse only by domestic demand.





Direct losses of the French tourism sector as a result of quarantine restrictions are estimated at 30-40 billion euros. This is reported by the Journal du Dimanche.

“Many operators tell us that their turnover will decrease by 20-25% by the end of the year. In normal times, tourism generates €180 billion in revenue, €60 billion of which is international tourism, “ said Secretary of state for tourism Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne.

According to him, the French tourism industry is kept from absolute collapse by the fact that 70% of French people prefer to spend their holidays at home.

“But let's be clear: in normal times, France receives 17 million foreign tourists every summer, when 9 million French people go abroad and part of this international clientele has disappeared,” Lemoine said.

Earlier, we reported that according to the UN, world tourism lost 320 billion dollars as a result of the pandemic.
