GCC Ecotourism Market to Witness Decelerated Demand in Short Term with Suspension of International Travel – Future market Insights

The global COVID-19 outbreak has suspended ecotourism operations indefinitely in GCC countries. Government emergency funding is essential for sustaining operations in the sector through the crisis.

DUBAI / ACCESSWIRE / July 6, 2020 / Future Market Insights: The GCC ecotourism market is expected expand at a healthy 7% through the end of 2020. Closure of international borders to contain the coronavirus crisis has suspended most operations in the travel and tourism sector. This has resulted in severe cash shortages in terms of salaries, maintenance, and resources for animal populations. Recovery is likely to be gradual as the sector assesses risks of opening businesses with that of the contagion.

“The demand for ecotourism projects in GCC countries is largely dependent on overall services and improvements invested in by countries in the region to meet the need for foreign tourists, while also keeping up with sustainability requirements in the near future, after the end of the pandemic,” states the FMI analyst.
