ETC tourism trends and prospects: 2021 Q2 webinar

European Tourism Trends & Prospects is a series of quarterly reports that offer a concise analysis of key economic and tourism trends in Europe and in relevant outbound markets. Quarterly reports are meant to provide the know-how necessary to monitor the short-term development of European tourism.

Please note that the webinar is hosted by ETC, with Tourism Economics and UNWTO.

Topic: Tourism Economics will provide an overview of the latest tourism sector trends and outlook in Europe, including a special focus on the prospects for recovery from longer-haul markets. Demand conditions, travel restrictions, sentiment and recovery will be compared for domestic, short-haul and long-haul source markets. Immediate growth prospects by major source market will be described, including differences by route (eg transatlantic vs Europe-Asia flows) as well as the longer-run growth potential.

UNWTO will share the latest tourism trends and outlook, as well as the UNWTO digital tools to support the recovery of tourism through data and market intelligence.

Please note that we will be repeating the same webinar to cater for the difference in time zones between EMEA, the Americas and APAC:

  • EMEA – Wednesday 23rd June | 13:30 BST
  • Americas – Thursday 24th June | 16:00 EDT
  • APAC – Friday 25th June | 10:00 HKT

Is sterling in the midst of a sell-off or a full-blown crisis?

Policy announcements are coming thick and fast in the UK at the moment and have been greeted with the most significant sell-off in UK assets in decades. Is this a case of markets overreacting or have the UK public finances been put on an unsustainable footing? Will the Bank of England react to the fall in sterling or are markets setting themselves up to be disappointed? We will set out our views on all these topics and set out the conditions under which we think this volatility will subside.

Pre-emptive debt restructuring: a viable scenario for fragile African sovereigns?

The expiry of Covid-19-related support coupled with a surge in the goods import bill has exacerbated pressure on external trade positions for various African sovereigns. We see headwinds intensifying from 2023 onwards in the form of a deepening drought in East Africa, populist-leaning policies aimed at appeasing voter frustrations, large redemptions of external public debt facilities, and moral hazard. The risk profile is fragmented but a common thread can be found across Africa: sovereigns face an uphill battle in meeting the projected external funding requirements. With the risks of disorderly default on the rise and informed by the Zambian blueprint, we investigate the case for pre-emptive debt restructuring for fiscally fragile nations including Egypt, Ghana, and Kenya.
