The Ministry of Tourism and Wildlife invites all the Tourism and Hospitality players in Kenya to a virtual webinar on Monday, 27th April 2020 at 03:00:00 PM EAT.
The topic of discussion is “Post COVID-19 Leap Forward”
The Coronavirus disease crisis has posed a huge challenge to the Tourism and Hospitality sector. It has created fear and uncertainties in the sector.
The Aviation industry, an important pillar of the tourism sector, has not been left behind. Consequently, travel restrictions and flight cancellations have significantly diminished the supply of travel services (both domestic and international) while demand continues to decline.
The UNWTO estimates that in 2020 global international tourist arrivals could decline between 20-30%, down from an estimated growth of 3% to 4% forecast in early January 2020.
The CS, Tourism and wildlife said “The tourism sector is currently one of the hardest-hit by the outbreak of the #COVID19 pandemic. On Monday, Apr 27, 3:00 PM EAT – We will host our first Webinar, to discuss the leap forward in the industry. “
In regards to the challenges that the Tourism and Hospitality sector is facing right now the ministry has decided to hold this webinar. It will provide guidance to the small and medium-sized Entreprises and other investors on how they can survive during and post COVID-19 crisis.
