“Tourism in our country will be back to normal after everything has passed” – MHRA

Reacting to a story published by the Times of Malta, in which it was stated that our country will be losing €3 billion from the tourism sector, and would lead to the loss of 50,000 jobs, the MHRA said this number was exaggerated.

It explained that our contry would be losing €2 billion and not €3 billion.  It was still too early to know how long this pandemic would last, and it described parts of the story in which it was stated that 50,000 jobs would be lost, as “sensationalist”.

It said that, together with the Government, it was working to safeguard as many jobs as possible so that when everything passes, the tourism sector would get back on its fact as quickly as possible, and continue from where it left off a few weeks ago.

The MHRA also referred to the measures which the Government is taking, primarily the economic ones, saying that this would lead to this recovery being possible, while praising the same measures and saying that they are on the same lines as other countries.
