ZAGREB, April 23 (Hina) – EU tourism ministers will hold a video conference on April 27 to discuss the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on tourism and measures to enable the quickest possible recovery of the sector, the Croatian Tourism Ministry said on Thursday.
The video conference will be held on the initiative of Croatian Tourism Minister Gari Cappelli.
The event will be organised as part of the Croatian presidency of the Council of the EU, and Minister Cappelli will chair the meeting as the relevant minister of the presiding country.
The conference was to have taken place in Dubrovnik but the plan was changed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Due to the pandemic and its disastrous effects on global tourism, including the EU and Croatia, the discussion will focus on the consequences of the pandemic and measures designed to help the tourism sector recover as soon as possible following the relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions and the removal of the travel ban, Minister Cappelli said.
