In a discussion held this morning (Wednesday) in the special committee for dealing with the corona virus regarding preparations for opening the sky to those entering and leaving Israel, said the director general of the Ministry of Tourism, Amir Halevi The following: “The tourism industry has been hit harder than other industries. Until the crisis, we were at an all-time high in the number of tourists entering Israel, and today we stand at 0 tourists.

“Domestic tourism is on the rise, but it is not a substitute for inbound tourism, so solutions must be found that will allow the entire industry to return to activity. If the industry does not return to activity immediately, it will collapse after the holidays. ”

Israel is a “start-up nation” and as such it must also lead in this field and bring solutions and initiatives that will enable a return to the activity of the industry. The Ministry of Tourism has submitted a proposal to open the industry to the Ministry of Health in order to produce an orderly outline with the introduction of tourists in a controlled manner, and not to rely solely on technology. ”

“The tourism industry and the tourism organizers unite dozens of companies that bring billions of shekels into the State of Israel every year, and we want to bring them back soon and also contribute to the motivation of the Israeli economy.”
