During the pandemic, we got to know that the Tourism and Global Economy go hand in hand. Tourism is by default one of the many aspects that work towards boosting any country's GDP as they provide employment opportunities to millions of professionals around the globe. Not only the mentioned aspect, but it is also a way to preserve a country's culture and history as well as making everyone aware of the same.
Therefore, September 27 is known as World Tourism Day that is celebrated globally to raise awareness of tourism. Tourism's political, socio-economic, and cultural impacts are discussed on this day as well as matters on raising awareness about the same and how it impacts the economy.
From 2020, during the pandemic, the travel and tourism industry is one of the major hit sectors in this pandemic era. Even though the tourist footfall has increased from what it was at the pandemic peak last year, experts say it will take a long time to get back to the pre-pandemic levels.
We all know that tourism is a broad sector which is divided into business, leisure, wedding, and many more. Out of them, the leisure industry and wedding industries are recovering quickly as compared to the business and MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions) sectors.
We believe tourism has the ability to bring the world together. Its involvement in the international community will only cater to positive growth in various aspects.
This year for 2021, the theme for the global tourism day is 'Tourism for Inclusive Growth.' As the ongoing pandemic has had a major impact on everyone around the world. Amongst the multiple segments, one of the worst-hit sectors was tourism. With this theme in mind, the UNWTO had aimed to rebuild the world by bringing back tourism as countries slowly return to normal execution. As tourism is slowly and steadily restarting, it will be a big boost for the economy.
