Time for tourism to raise its voice
In this issue, Canadian Travel Press sits down with Meghan Benton, the Director of Research for the International Program at the Migration Policy Institute (MPI) in Washington, D.C. and author of “Future Scenarios for Global Mobility in the Shadow of Pandemic.” At one point during the conversation, Benton observed that: “There’s a perception that a lot of travel is just tourism, but people rely on global mobility to maintain relationships with family members, to do vital business; in some cases, people stretch their lives between two or more countries and cross borders every day or every week.” Benton also pointed out that: “We have a Kafkaesque quagmire of different rules that don’t make sense and don’t fit together. Many governments have been throwing everything at the wall and seeing what sticks, and for all the rhetoric about wanting to open up and revive the tourism industry, there is still an implicit or explicit strategy of deterrence right now.”
