The Asia Travel Technology Industry Association (ATTIA) invites closer Government- Industry engagement to create consistent cross-border travel protocols
The Asia Travel Technology Industry Association (ATTIA) encourages partnership and closer cooperation between governments and the travel and tourism industry to spur the revival and growth of the tourism economy in Asia, and its members are poised to help.
The tourism and hospitality sector has been especially hard-hit. While tourism has historically proven to be a resilient industry, recovery from this crisis will be determined by the steps taken by the government to sustain the industry amidst idle capacity, but more importantly preserve the sector’s skillsets and capabilities over a protracted period.
ATTIA seeks to promote a deeper understanding of the policy issues that stand at the intersection of travel and technology. ATTIA serves as a resource and a catalyst for closer collaboration and information-sharing for the development of aligned industry/government priorities and vision for travel and tourism in the Asia-Pacific region.
