BCC Welcomes Global Travel Framework But Warns Questions Remain

9th April 2021

Responding to the publication of the Global Travel Taskforce Framework for International Travel, British Chambers of Commerce Director of Policy James Martin said:

“The sector has been hard hit in the last year, with prolonged uncertainty about when the full resumption of travel will be possible. This framework provides some welcome clarity however much uncertainty remains around what countries will be on the green list come May 17th. The PCR tests required under the guidelines will also prove costly for many travellers, harming those businesses and supply chains who rely on international travel to trade. The government must redouble their efforts to provide further clarity on the green list as quickly as possible and ensure PCR test are affordable and accessible to all”.
