Yesterday I was honoured to chair a @royafrisoc event looking at the impact of travel restrictions on Africa economies …. 1/5
What we heard from across the continent was the huge damage the travel restrictions are doing and that they are just one part of a triple whammy with which we are hitting African economies: 1st we are denying these countries access to vaccines by buying up all the stocks… 2/5
Next we are cutting off their tourist income - which is critical for many of their economies - by placing all African countries on the red list, regardless of widely differing situations… 3/5

Looking forward to a post-speech analysis of #Budget2021 and what this will mean for businesses in terms of recovering and thriving after the #Coronavirus pandemic #ASIEvents
First @MacdonaldJam opens by reminding us that Sunak’s #Budget2021 received a mixed response; some praising him for continuing #Coronavirus support & critics from Right & Left accusing him of spending too much & not spending enough respectively #ASIEvents
First, @UKHospKate gives #Budget2021 a 7/10 for the #Hospitality sector. Says it still feels like “emergency measures”. Says when restrictions are finally lifted, hospitality will have gone 12 months with 0 income & several months with tough restrictions in place #ASIEvents

Here is why you should #BoycottAzerbaijan a гаdioaстivе хепоfовiк country run by a hereditary dictator where any act of dissent is crushed, reporters/activists jailed beaten or Кi11ed, intolerant for LGBTI, minorities & Armenians, a very dangerous place for travel or investment👇
2/ If you are among a very marginal/weird group that is planning travels to or investing in this extremely defective & risk-prone place, here is what US official sources say about it

Last weekend, I made a threat on the ongoing #SocialMedia shutdown in Uganda and some implications on the future of #internet & Uganda's #digital agenda.

The thread attracted a lot of engagement and questions. Tonight, I will share some final thoughts on the subject. (1)
Conceptually, social media sites are the largest on-boarding platforms for internet users in Uganda. Notably, Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram & Snapchat attract the highest internet traffic- which drives demand for other platform services e.g Google and Zoom recently.
So- when we talk about an "open internet", we mean the FULL resources of the internet. Any encumberance on selected applications has ripple effects across the entire network thus jeorpadizing standardization of internet/data transmission which is essential for innovation & growth

A thread about #rhinos in #Namibia 🦏 🇳🇦🌍

1/ In the course of reading #colonial accounts of west Namibian landscapes for @Future_Pasts, I started mapping recorded encounters with rhinos: around 100 records so far, dating back to the late 1700s. 🦏
@SianSullivanUK 2/ The online map from this work indicates where #rhino were documented in the last 200 yrs.
Each placemark includes information for encounters as increasing numbers of mostly European men traversed the area. 🦏

@SianSullivanUK 3/ #rhino in #Namibia were decimated by colonial #hunting with firearms in esp. 1800s: for 'sport', meat and hides.

British Capn JE Alexander's text shows an 1837 rhino hunt where no rhino are now (afaik). Firearms, spears & arrows were all used for this hunt. 🦏

Let's start with a map of companies implanted in SFR.Yugoslavia.🏭

2. Here comes a #Yugoslav map for foodies.
Unlike for companies, the destruction of #Yugoslavia didn't change the local specialties, which remain the delight of all locals & visitors.
#Meatlovers are like fish in water there, & back in #France I dearly miss ćevap & pljeskavica!🥺 Image
3. Here are 2 pseudo #tourism-maps of #Yugoslavia, respectively made by locals & #Americans.

#Thailand #China #Bangkok #tourism #Coronavirus

Thailand Tourism Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn said Thailand will reopen to foreign tourists in October with limited restrictions. In the absence of a COVID-19 re-outbreak,
Chinese tourists will not have to undergo mandatory quarantine and can instead use coronavirus testing and a mobile tracking application. According to Thailand's long-stay tourist visa programme, the first batch of Chinese tourists will arrive in Bangkok on October 20.
Thailand plans to issue 1,200 visas per month to help ease the loss of foreign tourists over the last five months as tourism is severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the report.

Before the meeting between the federal and state governments about the right level of corona restrictions, the Federal Association of the German Tourism Industry warned of a second lockdown of the industry through the back door.
What is necessary are "less action, more sense of proportion and an end to the stigmatization of travel," demanded the association. "The tourism industry and its guests finally need reliable, understandable and, above all, proportionate regulations,"
said association president Michael Frenzel. He warned of a wave of bankruptcies in the industry with around three million employees.

#Japan #Tokyo #Tourism #Coronavirus

Japan registered around 8,700 tourists this August, 99.7 percent fewer than in August last year. This was shown by current data from the government on Friday. Nevertheless, the number of tourists continues to increase from month to month.
The number of visitors has more than doubled compared to the estimated 3,800 from the previous month. In May it was just 1,663, the lowest figure since such statistics began to be compiled in 1964, according to data published by the Japan Tourism Agency.
Even before the corona pandemic, there was a decline in visitor numbers, which can be attributed to the dispute with South Korea. The latest figures show the eleventh consecutive monthly decline since October last year.
