European Union

For tourism sector, the Portuguese Presidency follows the steps of the motto Time to act: for a fair, green and digital recovery, and devotes special focus on the following priorities:

_ implementation and monitoring of measures for recovery and job creation in the tourism sector, which has been particularly affected by the pandemic.
_ particular attention to SME, restoring consumer confidence and a better coordination of measures on the free movement of persons, as well as to promoting a sustainable, innovative and resilient ecosystem, including in related areas such as civil aviation and culture.
_ support efforts to create a European innovation network to sustain the digital transformation in the sector. In this context, we will launch a debate on big data and the free movement of such data as a source of tourism statistics, improving the supply of data available to businesses.
_ give a new impetus to sustainable tourism, highlighting the implementation of the results of the European Tourism Convention​ held in October 2020. The Presidency will hold a high-level forum on sustainability and tourism in Porto in May.
