UNWTO | June 23, 2020
The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) is once again calling on governments across the globe to restart tourism in a responsible way as the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a loss of about $195 billion in international tourism receipts over the first four months of 2020.
Fortunately, the UNWTO World Tourism Barometer shows that the industry is beginning to come back in some places, including destinations in the Northern Hemisphere.

Briels said that the COVID-19 pandemic was the catalyst for the decision. “I want to continue telling unique stories of Myanmar and creating experiences with niche products such as Lalay Lodge, biking adventures and others,” he said. Following Briels’s exit, Khiri Travel Myanmar will restructure and will continue to provide B2B travel services to clients as before. Since 2011, Khiri Travel Myanmar has been a joint venture between Briels, Aung Min Thein and Khiri Travel Ltd. Khiri Travel in Myanmar will now adjust internally while continuing to provide a full range of DMC services in the country.
