-56 % Japanese, -24 % Italians, -35 % Russians and -14 % Chinese

Rédigé par The Editors translated by Joséphine Foucher le Lundi 30 Mai 2016

The number of tourists in Paris and Île de France is dropping since the attacks in Paris and Saint-Denis on November 13, 2015. And the situation is getting worse with the repeated social movements and incidents in the protests broadcasted worldwide by the media. The CRT Paris Île de France calls on public authorities to come up with solutions.

Paris Île-de-France: the CRT is tired of “urban guerrilla scenes”
The Regional Tourism Committee (CRT) Paris Île-de-France cannot take it any longer.

It published a statement on Monday May 30th, 2016, in which it “raises the alarm” and alerts public authorities on the “serious risks that the current situation is posing on the tourism activity” of the destination.

The CRT is concerned about the protests and the “guerrilla scenes in the middle of Paris that are broadcasted worldwide.” This would reinforce the “feeling of fear and misunderstanding of visitors in an already alarming context following the extension of the state of emergency.”

The consequences are already manifesting themselves through the drop in the number of visitors from Japan (-56 %), Italy (-24 %), Russia (-35 %) and China (-13,9 %) in the first semester of 2016.
