9th ATRA TOURISM FORUM 2021

12th November 2021, Friday

02:00 pm - 03:30 pm (MYT) 

Zoom Online Platform

The theme of the ATF this year is "Is ASEAN Ready for the Travel Corridor?". The idea of Travel bubbles can be well-defined as an exclusive partnership between neighboring or nearby countries that have established significant success in reducing the number of cases of COVID-19 pandemic within their respective borders.

 

These countries then go on to re-establish connections between them by opening borders and allowing people to travel freely within the zone without needing to undergo on-arrival quarantine. The need to establish a travel bubble platform is to encourage travel in a safe zone without much hassle.

 

However, a sustainable tourism practice is needed to reopen tourism in a controlled manner.  As reported by United Nations, 1.7million more undiscovered viruses can emerge as threats. Thus, the forum aimed to explore the tourism reopening mechanism in the region in a sustainable way.
