Jean Castex must unveil, this Saturday, November 20, a plan of ” recapture of tourism “. After a crisis which strongly affected it, the sector is in decline. The government wishes to emphasize the enhancement of heritage and tourism innovation.

We must act, hammer together the actors of tourism. France is still the first tourist destination in the world, with 90 million foreign visitors two years ago, but it is more and more competitive and it is losing market share.

Before the Covid-19 crisis, France was only number three in the world in terms of international tourism receipts, behind the United States and Spain.

Improve training

The government’s plan provides for improving training and the attractiveness of trades in the sector. It will also be necessary to move upmarket the offer. This is particularly the case with campsites that are particularly lagging behind, particularly in their adaptation to environmental challenges. One of the privileged axes also concerns the promotion of heritage.

It takes money …

To invest, you need money, say the professionals. They want as a priority that this “Tourism plan” provides for a staggering of the repayment of loans guaranteed by the State over 10 years, against four currently. A request for the moment rejected by the Ministry of the Economy.

Almost 38 billion euros in aid have been paid to the tourism sector since the onset of the health crisis.
