Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Magdalena Adamowicz
 Subject: Support for the tourist industry in the face of the Covid-19 outbreak in the EU

The Covid-19 outbreak in the EU will have serious consequences for Europe’s tourism industry. Given the rapidly evolving epidemiological situation in Europe and across the world, the magnitude of the financial losses that will be experienced is difficult to gauge. It appears, nevertheless, that tourism is currently one of the worst-affected industries. Tourism is the third-largest sector of the EU economy, generating 10.3 % of GDP and employing 27 million people. SMEs are in a particularly difficult situation. They are not only suffering as a result of falling sales: there are also concerns about staff shortages and rising running costs.

In the light of the foregoing, what action is the Commission intending to take to support tourism operators, in particular SMEs, that are experiencing financial difficulties as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak in Europe and across the world?
