Tourism should return to pre-pandemic level only in early 2023

In an interview given to CNN Radio in July this year, the economist at the National Confederation of Commerce in Goods, Services and Tourism (CNC), Fabio Bentes, pointed out the critical situation in the country. “Since the start of the pandemic, the tourism sector has lost R$ 355 billion. The portrait, when looking back, is negative and, when looking forward, there is also difficulty”, he commented.

According to Bentes, there are “barriers imposed by the health crisis and economic problems, which make families, with a tight budget, sacrifice non-essential expenses”. So, packing your suitcase and going on a trip can be even more complicated right now. In addition, a report from the United Nations (UN) shows that the pandemic's losses to tourism will exceed US$ 4 trillion between the years 2020 and 2021.
