Loss of economic due to boarder’s closure in retail sector

All festivals, amusement parks, parks have been closed and will reopen by October

Focusing on high quality services have been of preference for domestic visitors, campsites have been fully booked 

Preferences: hiking, biking trails 

Few foreign visitors coming and MICE market still has not been reactivated


Measures to revert situation

8-week online training: 300 participants per day from 200 companies. The region compensated the 70% of the salary for 1-2 staff per company. Very well valued by the enterprises and will be used further one.

Limited the market campaigns to SE visitors.
