WTTC responds to the latest announcement from the U.S. government

  • By Julia Simpson, WTTC President & CEO

“The U.S. lifting travel restrictions to restore transatlantic travel between the EU and the U.K. is welcome news - not only for hard-pressed airlines, but for the wider Travel & Tourism sector, which has been decimated by COVID-19. “It will finally enable families to reunite, business travellers to resume face-to-face meetings and events, and for Travel & Tourism to return providing a major boost to these economies. “Visitors from the EU to the U.S contributed more than $35 billion to the economy in 2019, and UK visitors more than $11 billion, showing just how critical this move will be to the nation’s economy.

Is considered to be one of the most successful in the history of the global stock market. In July this year alone, market experts estimated that net inflows in individual U.S. stocks and exchange-traded funds rose to nearly $16 billion. International stock funds also followed in the footsteps of their U.S. counterparts, with 1.9% growth in August and an annual increase of 11.3%. The rising demand for consumer goods, such as food, electricity, or fuel, should mark a period of recovery, but such market optimism often leads in the opposite direction. One example of such market optimism dates back to 1897-1899. Even though the global economy grew, unemployment fell and consumption rose there was no shortage of money. Nevertheless, there were some concerns about an overheating economy and it was becoming increasingly difficult to predict how this might affect the market. Today’s global market situation rising commodity prices, growing consumer demand seems like a prophetic sign that we are moving in a similar direction, same as a hundred years ago. However, no gloomy forecast is set in stone, and in order to rationally assess a potential threat, it is first necessary to review key market indicators.
