The Future of Tour Business in 2021 with Steve Perillo

"This is a bad year tour companies. So what do you do when you run into tour company and suddenly. Nobody's traveling today on travel with rick. Steves we're joined by steve parilla of perello tours to talk about how we who make our living in the travel industry are trying to stay afloat in these months of zero revenue during the global pandemic. Steve is joining us to discuss. How the pandemic is hitting his industry and his expectations for the future steve. Thanks for joining us. How are you holding up. Pretty good considering pretty good. Have a driving tour company. Bring about what fifteen thousand people to europe each year. You're the third generation. Ceo of your family to her company. Perello tours how was twenty twenty looking before the pandemic hit it was going to be our best year since probably nineteen ninety-seven. It was going to be a very good year. We've been through a bad time so you know it's not an essential purchase trip so Before nine eleven we had all kinds of stuff If you're in the trump is every ten years you're going to have a really bad year but you lose half your business okay. But twenty twenty It was one hundred percent a loss of business which is astounding. We were euphoric in the tourist industry. We were queued up for our best years ever. The economy was so hot. Everybody wanted to travel. Everything was coming together. You know and you ramp up for it. And then said and bam not only do you have revenue. But you've got a lot of people that have given you money and you have to give back refunds. How did you know that. That is the bane of every tour operator. That's how they go out of business. They spend the deposits before the trip. You're not supposed to do. You're supposed to Ideally put it in escrow you put in a separate account. You don't touch it and we touched it but My father taught me about the rainy day fund and It was millions and millions of dollars. We had to return. Well i we as people to postpone it to this year and a lot of them did but now we're facing march april and may and this time they really do what their money back and it's justified so Were returning all the money and We're not gonna pay taxes for a few years i assume and We're gonna be fine. I don't wanna go through this again in my lifetime though. I don't really want to go. i don't either so you're returning all the money. Meaning you're not gonna pay taxes because you've lost so much money that you'll have losses to take forward under obama two thousand and ten You could deduct losses for five years after the bat. You're right now. There's there's actually laws in some states that prohibit tour companies like ours from doing anything in where i live in washington state. We don't have that option. I mean that money is protected until the tour is actually performed and at first. I didn't like that love. But i see i see the need for it and i'm glad we have it now. It gives us a little guidance. I always think capitalism uses chaperone and. That's what good government is all about for sure sure Now when you look at the industry in general how do you think. The industry did as far as relations and respect to their clientele. There were millions of people who were more than just inconvenienced by the advent of the pandemic when it comes to prepaid to her plans and so on. Well we all wanted to. We all wanted to ask the customer. Let us hold the money and we're going to Apply to next year or the next year. We're even going to give you some money off. And sem didn't really have an option that some of the cruise lies i really You know we're going to give you credit for the future but we have whatever. The customer wanted We did in this regard so we returned the money and a lot of cases and the goodwill is amazing. And they're gonna come back to us for sure. Nancy the goodwill. I mean we made a point of just not even letting people leave their money with this. Thank goodness we had the capacity to do. We sent back. Twenty thousand deposits took months to do it. It was a lot of work. We're not geared up to send the money back but that's what we had to do because as you said we're in this together for the long term and we gotta take care of of our public What do you think about the cost of cancelling tours. You had already set up as a tour organizer did you have to. Did you take a hit. By cancelling out of buses you had arranged in hotels. you had booked on not really the The airlines were considerate. You know we're on the same boat so So they were nice. They were nice. They worked with us in after the whole Catastrophic advent of this for tourism. How did the insurance companies come out. Did they step up to the plate and help people with it. Was the public generally satisfied if they had purchased. You know trip interruption insurance or was this something that was not covered It's not covered. They were tough. They were tough. I found them really not helpful at all. The insurance companies In general they didn't their reputation. Took a hit then after that because they didn't lose much money because depending people lost money in the insurance companies did not right and we have to make up the difference. if somebody We have penalties if you cancel but this was a totally exceptional situation so I don't care where. I don't care about money. We got through it. It's all gonna come back. You know you gotta be classy in this world and then you got to be standing you can have your team together when when you come out of this and we can ramp up again. So when i think of the long term consequences of covid in the pandemic. I'm concerned about the small mom and pop businesses especially in italy. That's your forte. Big companies can get through this pandemic. They can even profit from it. But it's the little moms and pops whether it's the little museum or the the little restaurant or or the little Hotel our guest house. What is your sense about. What's gonna be still standing when when the clouds of this pandemic lift. I know a lot of restaurants are not going to be there. But the italian government european governments are a lot more generous with their citizens so People still got their paychecks. Some checks were protected. I don't know all the details of italian government law but there are a lot more A helpful than the america you know. We have our our strengths to. Yeah well they pay high taxes and part of that is they expect their government to stand by them in a in a time. Like this it's Different from country to country. But in general i think it's fair to say that small operations mom and pops and so on her have a good chance to get through this at this second year of this cova. I don't know how long they can last. But that really is what makes travel so appealing is not to have to go to a strip mall and buy from international corporation. But you have that character you got the local little entrepreneurial ventures and the people with a passion and they love their clientele and it's a joy to be part of that scene and it's a fun puerta. Tourism isn't the old crafts are still alive. And well you know the Inlaid wood is an amazing art. Mosaics are fantastic. We can around these artisans with are group's at the table and and watch that happening. This is travel with rick.

EU could reopen borders to tourists in Covid-19 recovery plan

"With many European borders closed because the corona virus pandemic the tourism industry already hard hit he's feeling a catastrophic summer but it's not just tourists are affected business travel has taken a hit to answer the European Commission the executive arm of the E. U. is introducing a rescue plan or roadmap today to alleviate the pressure on the economy I asked our Europe correspondent Gavin Lee how the road map could help the tourist industry the three elements to it basically it's about in the words of the the commission spokesperson at a briefing but I've had the rights of individuals for the need to rest relaxation fresh chat and see families in other countries not depends of course on the situation the commission says of how bad the extent of the virus is spreading whether it remains fairly common there isn't a second spike but what we're looking at the setting out a roadmap for tourism and travel and holidays as of this summer so some of twenty twenty I know what's and a couple of the areas includes making sure of course it's slow it's progressive there will be some kind which told of guys that if you're going on holiday somewhere in Europe there should be an indication of what all the coveted prevention strategies in each country that you might go to what all the hotel strategies and also there will be a recommendation the individual hotels start to advertise put themselves on the market in what they can offer your average tourist and holiday maker in terms of conflict prevention cleanliness ability to to sanitize things like that but that should be part of the you know the new holiday approaches for example of these old recommendations so that's one of them and the other thing is about analogs and number of countries fourteen countries have said that because of the pressure off the adult industry give you an exam well I am in Brussels the main advice here Brussels airlines have axed are they going to access a quarter will jobs a thousand staff will go into the open a third of the allied fleet will go as well all the giving money as cash back for people who need refunds for cancelled flights because of coverage the idea was to give vouchers no the EU commission will push back in the meeting today to say no you can make vouchers more attractive more appealing but that should be fundamentally principle of the rights of of somebody to have the money back instead so that service a couple of elements that are looking at as part of the the summer travel plan today so if you are within the E. U. and you want to go on holiday can you go anywhere this is a really good points on this is there are two words or phrases that you might still hear more more one is social trouble bubble a social travel bubble the second is a travel corridor so for example this Friday the Baltic states already putting the borders to each other so Estonia Latvia Lithuania what's been relatively few cases along with Finland already booked to travel in and out of each other's countries so for example Estonia relies on tourists from Finland forty percent of its tourists come up from that so this is a big thing and that will mean free movement for all of those people the Swiss national broadcast today have suggested that they will announce later on that the internal borders between Switzerland Austria Germany and France would also reopen for total travel between them so the idea is that that you you've got almost a either social bubble of of those countries innocent people in those countries going on holiday that briefly travel corridors was put to the E. U. yesterday by my Danish Coley there's been talk of Denmark for example saying that they've had a few cases could I have a simple flight path to Greece was also a few cases the commission says that will be up to member states but they will not recommend it and they would also not recommend quarantine if you fly somewhere but you should have to stay fourteen days in a hotel they said there should be no need for that with the way prevention for coverage I should in theory take place on the grounds of get home sometimes as washing it

Climate catastrophes and now coronavirus, Pacific islands in the crosshairs

"The covert nineteen pandemic is wreaking havoc around the globe. The remoteness of the Pacific Islands has left people living there vulnerable in many different ways. You and resident coordinator Seneca Summer Sheena said in an interview with UN news that with borders an airport shutdown protection gear specialist personnel and lifesaving medical supplies have been unable to reach many areas in need and the crisis has only been heightened by the devastation inflicted by category five. Cyclone Herald which ripped through Vanuatu. Mr Samora Sheena overseas you and Operations Fiji Micronesia. The Salomon Islands Marshall Islands. Kiribati Palau Tonga. Vanuatu Nehru and Tuva. Lou acknowledged to Julia Dean. The difficulties in moving people and cargo has been impinging on the UN's ability to respond to the corona virus crisis. Will I think that you know? Some of the challenges are much the same as everywhere else in terms of making sure that the people are tested that people are safe social distancing action sinks in people follow the policies. Making sure that the equipment that's necessary for health workers are in place you know these are of course the challenges around the world with you're talking about New York City of Fiji but I think particularly challenging here in the Pacific as the remoteness of the locations it is also an sending that the number of people in the Pacific have different types of underlying health conditions. So if you actually have a massive outbreak with very concerned that this could have serious consequences for a significant segment of the population. I think the fact that the borders have been closed in many places and flights have stopped. Mix The issue of remoteness even more challenging so we are finding it difficult to move whether we're talking about personal protection equipment or other types of medical equipment and supplies are specialists and experts that we need in order to respond to this the movement of people in Congress very difficult at the moment. And what else is the UN doing to support the communities and governments of the UN has really come together this time and we have a range of things that we have responded. We've set up something old joint incident Management Team to look at the immediate health sector preparedness and Response Plans of countries. We received requests from the country's is you are aware. I covered ten countries in the Pacific. These requests come not only from those ten countries but from around the Pacific all of the country in the Pacific. And then we've prioritized. We look at the logistics capabilities in terms of the procuring and delivering what is being requested from us. And the the requests you know range of things from testing laboratories setting up testing laboratories to Mosques for health workers too Water and sanitation supplies etcetera at the same time we are acutely rather than multiple needs in multiple sectors whether we are talking about protecting women and children when we talk about places where cities have been locked down for weeks at a time. Or we're talking about food security right now because people are unable to work and don't have an income or you're talking about multiple disasters had a cycle of the number of countries and that compounds the crisis that Corbett nineteen is brought all the Pacific Tropical Cyclone Herald. I think is better. Four countries in as many days. Can you expand on what happens in a situation where you've got a health issue plus a natural disaster happening at the same time so on the one hand you could argue that up to a little bit better prepared here in the Pacific because we have to deal with a measles outbreak several months ago and some of these structures and mechanisms already in place to ensure that we fight the measles outbreak in fact the joint Incident Management Team? That I mentioned to you before was something that existed from that outbreak and was re purposed into dealing the covert nineteen similarly We have something in the Pacific humanitarian team functions. Here brings together all of the U. N. and other partners like the Red Cross and the NGOs are now we have government representatives and the regional organisations bilateral Austrailia New Zealand so those structures are in place and it really helped in some ways arguably to respond as will two TC herald which had an impact on four of the countries. All of them are in the Pacific quality which I support the Solomon Islands Tonga Fiji and Vanuatu by far based on preliminary analysis. Certain parts of Vanuatu are the worst hit followed by a couple of areas in Fiji Solomon Islands Tonga thankfully a not impacted significantly as went to sadly though twenty seven. People lost their lives in Solomon Islands. As a result of this cyclone-hit abort that Kept signs people washed off the boat and have one confirmed death in Fiji a six year old child. That was confirmed with just this morning. We're still waiting for the data from Anwar two areas of Vanuatu that We don't have any communication with in Pentecost Island. For instance the first teams have been going there yesterday and this morning to make detailed assessments but clearly we can see based on the aerial photography and other reports that some one hundred sixty thousand people in. Monroe ought to have been affected by this especially badly affected Guyland of Santo and And penticost lagoon. Bill is a second largest city in Vanuatu. In that's on the island of Center. We know that the infrastructure people's homes roofs blown off. We know that there has been some shortage of water. There's no electricity many pants. Also the that's the case in Fiji in terms of the deputy and we are very concerned about food security We think that if we don't get things sorted we will have people going hungry in a metro. Weeks the secretary-general Monster Reform Agenda in two thousand. Nineteen with this double crosses happening in areas of the Pacific Reform Agenda Aid situation. I can already see that happening in the past few weeks as we've been working together as one. Un system. I think it's an important change to how the UN has maybe functioned in some other places during times of disaster even in between disasters. So for instance if you you have all of the sectors coming together we know that this for instance Kobe. Nine hundred ninety s right now is something that is a health sector response or largely so. But it's not only you cannot possibly move your medical equipment and personnel from one place to another. If you don't have your logistics people work so whilst you have W at show and unit steph looking at the medical supplies you'll have. Wfp leading logistics identifying aircraft. And actually getting things for months the other you have other parts of the UN like U. N. O. P. S. O. U. N. D. P. who have existing long-term agreements with suppliers in China or North America or elsewhere who's agreements can be used to procure things that we need. You have like. Un Women the officer High Commissioner for Human Rights and others NGOs as well the very important issue of protection for children for women for people with disabilities when they're curfews when they're lockdowns as I mentioned before you have very important role being played by UNHCR IOM. We know that refugees and migrants are especially vulnerable at this time when borders of closed. And they don't have the coping mechanisms that perhaps People who are living in their homes half so these dishonor accept food security as I mentioned before is a big problem. It's not just a problem in the context of the cyclone because several countries that depend on tourism in the Pacific as you know some of those countries Fiji for instance Vanuatu more than forty percents of the GDP is based on tourists industry and people have no income. Now they have no income and as a result that have very little access to food. So there are agencies like F your and uplift be Undp looking at Making sure that cash transfers cash grants can take place now while of course trying to support the government's in dealing with economic impacts the medium-term and long-term economic impacts of this crisis Hannah seeing the reform saving lives. Yes indeed in fact I was not so long ago in Liberia and I was Impressed by how the UN First of all came together but importantly all of the other partners came together as well. There was something called the incident management team and we used to meet three times a week. You had countries like China and the US are the CDC sitting there with. The government was led by the government. So first of all you know these things work well when governments are able to coordinate all of the actors and would we've tried to do here is wherever governments have needed. A wanted our support in terms of accord initiative. We've done that. We support the government. The governments are still in the league but we support them. I think what I am seeing now in terms of covert nineteen in the Pacific as a repeat of what I saw in Liberia and sadly that was not always the case was also in some other countries during this Nami and other cyclones. But I do see that here. There is a commitment on the part of all of the agencies to actually come together in some sense you know having a different role for a resident coordinator has also made a difference speakers agencies. Feel that the President. Coordinator is a neutral entity at the same time is a person that the government knows Vagan Goto to without having to go to seventeen different agencies during crisis like this but it's also important to know that this collaboration between W A chore and the Resident Coordinator Is something quite unique. It's happening really for the first time and I. It seems to be working not only in the Pacific but everywhere around the world. And what is your call to actions? Nice listening but in the Pacific and globally. I believe that this crisis can only be dealt with if we work together. It is of course human nature when something like this happening on. One tends to think of how one CAN PROTECT. Oneself one's family perhaps wants community and by extension When country but at the end of the day we can't respond to crisis legs alone Whether we are an individual or family or community or country we need to help each other so as much as we need to ensure that the right protocols are in place that we do our best to keep ourselves and our loved one safe we must understand that the only way we can actually beat this is my reaching out and helping each as well and we cannot just circle the wagons and hope that this will pasta and we will be protected. We have to find ways. Safeway's creative ways using technology but if technology is not available sometime through physical movement but safely to get the expertise to get the and this applies to places where it's needed especially so that the most vulnerable populations are supported and helped during this terrible crisis.

"A lot of emotions going on in the world. People are feeling a lot of emotion. Every minute right solicit people going stir crazy. It means a lot of stuff is coming up. And we're going to give you a little update on the corona virus. Pandemic there are now over two hundred and fifty thousand cases over ten thousand deaths. Italy has now become the country that has the highest death rate. More than three thousand. Four hundred this is surpassing China. Meanwhile there is some hopeful news that I hope we can trust. China is reporting that the rate of new infections is close to zero. I really really WANNA believe. The Chinese government and their government-sponsored media but still cove in nineteen is having a really intense impact on all of us. You know whether it's global travel whether it's the economy family members stuck someplace that can't get back you stuck in your own house. Then we have to listen to a president who is saying. Non Essential travel between the United States and Canada will be suspended. Yeah I mean not only in Canada but also on Friday the White House. They announced during a task force briefing the daily. Corona virus briefings that disclosure is now going to be extended to the. Us Mexico border starting this weekend and yeah you know both president trump and secretary of state. Mike Pompeo at the press conference. They just toss it out there like calling it. The Chinese virus and that term has been a controversy all this week for its racism and how trump administration continues to use it the A. J. A. Which is Association of Asian American Journalists Publish. A joint statement with other journalism groups essentially condemning the use of terms like that and then maybe was predictable for me. This whole notion of like now. We're closing. These borders because migrants are bringing in the virus. I mean it was so obvious at this was where it was going to go unchecked immigration. And it's clear that trump. We shouldn't be surprised that that's what he said. Because you know that's basically just plays into the trump xenophobic playbook on immigration. Of course. He's saying now that he knew about this virus all the time and he knew how seriously he was taking it. I guess we were the last ones to know on Thursday Australia and New Zealand. Both announced that they're closing their borders to foreign nationals. But I did see this picture of like a beach. I think in Australia. That was packed and I was like Kay mixed messages. Stop looking at photos of beaches. That's a really smart gate. Stop looking at photos of beaches. So you see this money up Thursday night and California. The largest state in America. California Governor Gavin Newsom. He ordered over nearly forty million people in the state to stay home which is called shelter in place except when necessary indefinitely. He said indefinitely blissett muddy at one of the things that people aren't talking about and I I mentioned Mexico. You know covert nineteen. This is a crisis also happening. In Latin America and the Caribbean in terms of travel. Most countries in South America have enforced. Some kind of restriction. Guatemala was the first country to ban foreign travellers including travelers from the US. That happened last week. The land borders in Brazil have travel restrictions now to foreign visitors are ten Dina close. Its borders completely to non-residents Chile Peru Columbia have all closed their borders completely to try to get ahead of the spread and actually one our contributors. His brother his stuck in bed waiting for the United States to get them out so he's stuck with his family. We tweeted about it and Latin America. Alone there over twelve hundred. Cova nineteen cases. And I know I'm bringing like you know bad Juju but we did share this cute little song out of Latin America for kids about washing their hands said we both tweeted. And I can't get it out of my head Alan Rightist. So that's a little that we got this week but all this money on that song or anything what is going through your mind. Well I'M GONNA learn how to do that dance. That's like a frog in that video. Sing that song. I WanNa see you. You should videotape that. That's the context. What's that thing that kids do with the the music? What's that Tick Tock? Okay so my daughter is like become expert on to talk. And she's teaching me things but look very specifically very very very specifically what I said at the top of the show which is that. Everybody is feeling this. It's getting really close to all of us in so many ways. You know my mom and my brother are in Mexico. They were supposed to come back. They live there half the year. There were supposed to come back. I don't know when I'm going to see them again. To be honest like that's happening now like we as you know. I was on my way to Mexico to report a really important story. About how in the middle of all of this virus there are people still fleeing for their lives from gang members. I was going back to Mexico to Tapa Chula to report on a young refugee who may actually be one of the lucky ones because he just got inside Mexico while because what's happening is that countries are shutting. Down was actually the first one before they had any case of covert nineteen they did a national shutdown quarantine essentially really extraordinary in terms of forward thinking. Now people think that was a smart decision. Dominican Republic has cancelled flights from Milan. Which is you know. I mean the. Dr Boondock Anna Direct flights from to the Dr This is what sustains the tourist industry is is what sustains much of the economy again. I have these images of like. How do you do proper social distancing in Latin America? The human connection being able to hug people like we like we do that. We Hook people that we hug and kiss people that we just inner DNA. We hug it out all the time. How educate you know so? I know that's happening and the other thing. I'm sure you're thinking of. Julio is the return of of authoritarianism of the troops on the street to keep people out on America if for their own safety but now who again it just memories of empty streets with tanks patrolling down them in the streets of Santiago or is or really need these are all things that have happened under the guise of a code nineteen virus that this could be. The return of it is very disconcerting. What about you? I mean I'm thinking about what the there's a lot of things happening in Puerto Rico. Curfews businesses shutting down. I'm trying to call attention to the fact that the Puerto Rican economy. Just it's shot and this is just. GonNa add more pain. Think about this. You know earthquakes now. There's covert nineteen. There's a lot of anxiety. Let's not forget the Caribbean Haiti. The Dr. You know all the Caribbean islands. That don't have the access that don't have the resources and I do believe that. He was being ignored once again by the United States. I know the federal government's having so many issues with its response in the mainland. The was not even a Blimp. But one of the things that you mentioned. Maria is the impact that the crisis at the pandemic is having on refugees and asylum seekers in when it comes to immigration in this country so this week several immigration courts have postponed hearings already last week in Immigration Court Seattle's shutdown temporarily because of the spread another thing about the immigration courts of the Department of Justice. If you actually read the document. They didn't say they're like ending hearings. Things can happen via telephone and things can happen. Be a video conferencing so I think people are thinking that everything stopping. It's not then on Tuesday. Trump like just announces that he's GonNa turn back all asylum-seekers at the southern border to prevent the corona virus spreading in detention facilities. When in fact from what I understand the spread came from the north down. You know I mean. Cases in the United States happened way before anything in Latin America. But that's what he's saying. Isis also issued a statement on Wednesday saying that they're adjusting their enforcement to focus primarily on immigrants detained for criminal reasons. So I guess we're back Obama. The ICE statement came after they arrested a man in L. A. Who is buying groceries for his family ahead of the city's call for self quarantine because he was on their list due to a past. Dui conviction so there you

White House To Provide Economic Relief To Counter Coronavirus's Effects

"The World Health Organization has now declared the corona virus to be a global pandemic after initially downplaying the threat posed by Kovic. Nineteen president trump announced a number of new measures last night to address the outbreak including a limited ban on travel from European countries to the United States which will last for thirty days. The president also promised emergency aid to workers and small businesses. I will soon be taken emergency action. Which is unprecedented to provide financial relief? This will be targeted for workers. Who are ill quarantined or carrying for others. Due TO CORONA VIRUS. So what exactly is that? Financial Relief GonNa look like let's ask. Npr's chief economic correspondent. Scott horsely hi Scott. Good Morning Rachel tell us more about the economic measures introduced by the president last night. While don't know exactly what that aid is going to look like. But you heard the president. They're talking about emergency action to help workers who don't have sick leave The idea is to make up for that loss. Pay If they're forced to stay home and the President says he'll act on an emergency basis on his own and then he's asking Congress for help to extend that relief he's also starting the small business administration to offer more low cost loans to businesses affected by the outbreak much as the SBA would do in the case of a natural disaster and again he's asking Congress for more money fifty billion dollars more to expand that assistance. He suggested that the April fifteenth tax filing deadline could be postponed to give affected workers and businesses more time and also just to keep more money out there floating around the economy and he renewed his call for a payroll tax cut. Can you just give us a sense of of the president's tone? I mean was there enough certainty in this address last night to ease concerns of of Americans who are concerned about their livelihood because of the outbreak. There wasn't a lot of certainty. This is still more of an outline. An actual plan If the idea was meant to reassure financial markets it had the opposite effect The futures market is indicating another big drop in. Us stocks. Today it does look as if both Congress and the administration taking the economic threat posed by the corona virus outbreak seriously. But they don't yet have a coordinated plan to address it and at the same time some of the additional public health measures that are being adopted around the country in all the increases in school. Closings the work from home. Orders things dramatic as the NBA suspending. Its sense all of that means more economic disruption It may very well be the right move to to take for a public health from a public health standpoint to slow the spread the virus but it does come with a short term economic price tag. you alluded to some of them. But what are what are some of the biggest outstanding questions when it comes to the administration's response will the big question is can they get it together and can they do it quickly in house? Democrats appear to be moving on one track. The White House on another. The president continued to press last night for payroll tax cut. There's very little appetite on Capitol Hill for that Certainly Democrats don't like the Republicans aren't very keen on either. They're likely will be some agreement on other measures like those small business loans and they certainly both lawmakers and the White House certainly share the goal of helping workers who don't have sick leave and are forced to stay home because of the outbreak. Although it's not clear that they're on the same page when it comes to how to accomplish that Could we just finally turned to that travel ban President limiting travel banning travel from foreign nationals from Europe to the United States exempting American citizens. Trying to get back home if they go through extra screening. But what would be the impact? What could be the impact on international trade? Well when it comes to trade in goods we should say it has no effect. The president's speech is a little bit garbled and some people are left with the impression that exports from Europe might be effected. The White House clarified into tweet. That the travel ban taking effect at midnight. Friday applies only to visitors from Europe. Not Cargo. But it's still another big blow for the Tourist Industry Europeans account for about thirty percent of international visitors at this time of year. So it's going to be another hit for airlines hotels tourist attractions and the notion of international commerce. Npr's economic correspondent Scott horsely. Thank you your commercial.
