Allied with the Countries to quickly overcome the pandemic crisis
Tourism as an engine driving the recovery of the local economy after the unprecedented crisis of Covid-19.
Easy Diplomacy – by fully embracing the principles set forth by the UN and the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) – has elaborated a format to provide countries in need with tools and hope to overcome the economic crisis faster. A new integrated model of assistance and consultancy, which acts as an accelerator for the definition of the new tourist positioning.
The OECD analysis (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) indicates that a high proportion of jobs in the tourism industry is at risk in many European destinations.
The same goes for other countries whose main vocation is tourism. They have been forced to face an estimated drop by 70-90% in turnover for at least a year (source: UNWTO)
When the time comes to relaunch the industry, these countries will struggle to receive and host foreign visitors again.
That is why immediate intervention and concrete actions on a number of fronts are required to lay the ground for a reshaped and reorganized tourism offer.
Rethinking tourism and creating new opportunities for local development
We engage in complex internationalization projects aiming at creating a new identity for the country as a new, safe, welcoming place, and inspiring tourist destination.
Multi-level and multi-platform communication shall be paramount to reach the medium and long-term objectives.
New tourist flows will be reactivated thanks to the collaboration between Easy Diplomacy, the Diplomatic World, and private tour operators. As a result, new local development opportunities are going to be created, along with unquestionable economic and social benefits.
Our projects are designed to overcome the deep crisis triggered by the Coronavirus pandemic because they turn the UN principles for relaunching tourism into reality.
UN priorities for tourism recovery
The UN document “Priorities for Tourism Recovery” lays down the following principles among its guidelines:
- Provide liquidity and protect jobs;
- Recover confidence through safety & security;
- Public-private collaboration for an efficient reopening;
- Added value jobs through new technologies;
- Innovation and Sustainability as the new normal for tourism;
United vision and public-private partnership
To achieve these results, the UN and UNWTO have redefined the role of DMOs (Destination Management Organizations) as «organizations leading and coordinating multiple actors who are going to create cultural, strategic and organizational conditions fostering tourist destination development.»
Various other documents issued by national and international organizations clearly state, moreover, that (re)creating successful post-pandemic destinations requires overcoming the limitations of a fragmented vision on the complex system for tourism promotion & hospitality management.
A united and integrated approach must be prioritized. This approach enables the definition of general and unambiguous strategies that can be managed individually at the local level.
That is why our internationalization projects focus on the reorientation of tourists’ choices and new priorities arising in terms of safety, leisure, and serenity of tourist experience.
The importance of trust
In the near-future scenario, the trust in tourist service providers will be crucial, as guarantors of safety and security of the tourist destination.
For this reason, Easy Diplomacy aims for a partnership with Embassies and Consulates. As the major providers of protection in a foreign land, they are called to act immediately by taking necessary and courageous decisions.
The result is the great value of Easy Diplomacy’s proposal to act as a Project Management with a vision for the future and the ability to identify the new tourists now.
