A new analysis from Menon Economics and the University of Southeast Norway shows that up to 30,000 jobs can be lost in tourism if Norway does not take necessary measures for the industry. Color Line has sent a press release about this.
By opening the borders to the Nordic countries and Germany this summer, approx. NOK 14 billion of revenue from foreign tourists coming to Norway by sea in the summer of 2020 could be saved. The analysis concludes that opening the borders of these countries will be the most powerful single initiative to revive the tourism industry this summer.
