Tourism is a major economic activity in the European Union with wide-ranging impact on economic growth, employment, and social development. It can be a powerful tool in fighting economic decline and unemployment. Nevertheless the tourism sector faces a series of challenges. The European Commission works to address these with policies and actions.
The outbreak of COVID-19 has put the EU tourism industry under unprecedented pressure and tourism companies of all sizes are facing acute liquidity problems. On 13 May 2020, the Commission adopted a comprehensive package of initiatives to allow for a coordinated framework to resume transport and tourism safely, enable Europeans to travel and enjoy the summer tourism season in safety, as well as address pressing issues for tourism operators and consumers.
