Asian countries impacted the hardest way by tourism job loss

Published on : Monday, November 22, 2021

As per ILO (International Labour Organization), Asian countries like Thailand, Brunei, Mongolia, Vietnam and Philippines experienced one-third of loss in job in tourism. Due to COVID-19, 1.6 million jobs were lost in these abovementioned countries. Compared to other sectors, tourism witnessed four times more job loss, as per Chihoko Asada-Miyakawa, ILO Director for Asia and Pacific.


As per the Director, women employees were proportionally hit in the hardest way by the pandemic. To quote Asada-Miyakawa, “ Even with countries in the region focusing heavily on vaccinations and designing strategies to slowly re-open borders, jobs and working-hours in the tourism-related sector are likely to remain below their pre-crisis numbers in Asia-Pacific countries into next year.”


Brunei was that Asian country that got affected the most with tourism jobs plunging 40 percent and in Philippines 28 percent.
