Global Rescue: On the ground in Chile

A million demonstrators took to the streets in Santiago, Chile, while dozens of smaller protests were taking place throughout the South American country.

Tourists like Ricardo Siman, CEO of a chain of department stores and three family members, were caught up in the civil unrest.

“We were in Punta Arenas (in southern Chile) going to evening church services. When we came out of Mass we saw soliders fire water cannons at protesters and then they started firing tear gas to disperse the demonstrators. We saw the turmoil was growing. So we made it back to our hotel and made plans to fly out the next day, first to Santiago and then Atacama, but all the flights were canceled because the airport was closed.”

Tourists Return to Egypt

Tourism insecurity in Tunisia spreads over to Egypt and Turkey

As a result of the attacks in Tunis at the end of June, the decrease in security perception and demand has also extended to other predominantly Muslim tourist destinations.

On Thursday 27th June, terrorism struck again in Tunis with a double suicide attack, thus tarnishing a tourist season that was set to be prosperous. This double attack has shattered the relative peace of the last few years, a far cry from the wave of attacks in 2015 which had previously ruined the country’s tourist sector.

Singapore

Singapore is getting a lot right in its response to COVID-19 – What can governments and businesses learn from the example?

As the world battles to contain COVID-19, Singapore is one of a few countries that has set a good example in effectively managing the health crisis without yet having to resort to a full lockdown and its associated dire economic consequences.

Although it is fortunate in having a strong healthcare system, a small population (~5.6 million) in a concentrated area and the financial means to support it, much of its success can be attributed to strong management practices and balanced, targeted remedies that could be universally applicable.

From utilising a strong response framework designed after SARS, to novel strategies to enforce compliance with Stay Home Notices (SHN), numerous learnings are available from Singapore’s response. A few, relevant for businesses and governments around the world, are highlighted below.

Holiday Rental in Spain: over 60% occupancy in August

The evolution of holiday rental occupancy for August shows a clear positive trend both in rural and beach locations, according to a study carried out by the Travel Intelligence consultancy firm Mabrian Technologies.

This information would confirm the trend that seems to show that, in the midst of the health crisis, demand for holiday rentals exceeds the demand for hotels during the most important month of the summer season in Spain.

By type of establishment, it’s important to highlight that demand for rentals in rural locations is almost on par with rentals in beach locations, for a month where demand has traditionally always been for coastal locations.
