Qatar Chamber's tourism and exhibition committee reviewed Sunday developments in the tourism sector and the most important challenges facing it under the precautionary measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). The committee also discussed the preparations of hotels and tourism offices in the framework of the gradual lifting of restrictions imposed by due to the Coronavirus, as well as the rebound of tourism activity.
The review was held during a webinar headed by QC board member and chair of the committee His Excellency (H.E.) Sheikh Hamad bin Ahmed bin Abdulla Al Thani in the presence of all members of the committee.
His Excellency said that the committee is currently identifying the most important obstacles faced by hotel owners and travel offices due to the consequences of the Coronavirus pandemic and the complete halt of tourism and travel.
He also noted that the committee is also working on proposals and recommendations for developing the private tourism sector after rebounding of the economic activity with the gradual lifting of restrictions and to identify the vision of the private sector for the coming period. He affirmed that these visions will be submitted to the QC's Chairman and to the relevant government bodies.
His Excellency also pointed out that the Committee, in cooperation with the concerned parties, is constantly discussing developments in the tourism sector and organising exhibitions after this crisis ends, as the sector was highly affected by the suspension of travel and airport closing around the world, and the cancellation of tourist exhibitions and events, noting that these impacts resulted in the cancellation of travel reservations, refund of advance fees and other damage to travel offices and exhibitions.
