World Tourism Day 2021: How COVID-19 has Impacted the Economy

In 2019, international tourist arrivals reached 1.5 billion, a 4% increase over 2018, consolidating a ten-year record where tourism grew faster than the world economy as a whole. Domestic tourism added a further 8.8 billion arrivals. The sector generated $1.5 trillion in exports and employed one in ten people directly or indirectly.

Tourism came to a standstill in mid-March 2020. International tourist arrivals decreased by 56 per cent in the first months of the year, with numbers in May down by 98 per cent. This translates into a loss of nearly $320 billion in exports – over three times what was lost during the whole of the 2009 global economic crisis.

Are You Worried About the Impact of COVID-19 on Tourism Sector in Mauritius

The travel and tourism industry has become a global industry, which is widely considered one of the fastest-growing industries globally.

There are various purposes for one to be a tourist and to travel. Some of the reasons people travel could be for fun, experience, or increase their knowledge and learning, or for work purpose.

This current disaster has forced people to stay home, and in a certain way, they are imprisoned for their security. The coronavirus has massively affected all the industries around the world but mainly the travel and tourism industry.

World Tourism Day 2020: Rebuilding tourism in a safe, equitable, climate-friendly way

Tourism has been among the hardest hit of all sectors by the COVID-19 pandemic. No country has been unaffected. Restrictions on travel and a sudden drop in consumer demand have led to an unprecedented fall in international tourism numbers, which in turn have led to economic loss and the loss of jobs.

Women, youth, and workers in the informal economy are the most at risk from tourism sector job losses and business closures due to the pandemic. At the same time, the destinations most reliant on tourism for jobs and economic growth are likely to be the hardest hit.

Who Cares?

We have been taught all our lives that to be decent human beings means that we exist on this earth to (as far as we can) make life less difficult for others, and in turn, make them less difficult for us. To feel like we have a greater purpose and to feel like we are making a difference, we need to help our fellow human beings in any way we can.

This attitude is ideally also meant to extend to monitoring our behaviour so that our impact on nature and the world, in general, is as positive as possible. However, every day, the human race fails to inspire because the world has become such an incredibly harsh place to call home.

YUVA Launched First Event at Petit Raffray to Battle Unemployment

YUVA, in close collaboration with the Human Resource Development Council (HRDC), organised a first event at Petit Raffray Social Welfare Centre yesterday morning.

This event is in-line with YUVA’s goal to reduce unemployment among young people in Mauritius.

At the event yesterday, around 200 unemployed young people of the Riviere Du Rempart District registered for the National Skills Development Programme for training in technical skills that are in high demand. The youngsters’ education level varied from form III to HSC.

The professional courses being offered to the young people are in different sectors, mainly Tourism & Hospitality, Construction, ICT and Nursing. The duration of the courses may vary from 6-12 months.

Apart from getting a free professional course, every participant would also be receiving a monthly stipend of Rs 6,000.

We at YUVA are proud to bring our brick to contribute in reducing unemployment in Mauritius.

YUVA President Krishna Athal said in his speech yesterday, “Reducing unemployment should be a top priority for every NGO in Mauritius nowadays. If our youngsters can’t secure a better future, they will frustrate and get involved into outlaws. After this first event, YUVA will organise a similar gathering at Lallmatie next month, and this will continue until we cover all the 9 districts of the country.”
