Virtual Conversation on the Tourism Industry’s Recovery Plan from a cross-border perspective
The San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, Tijuana Tourism and Conventions Bureau (COTUCO), San Ysidro Chamber of Commerce, and San Diego Tourism Authority will host a discussion on Thursday, June 11 from 10:00 to 11:30am focused on our binational region’s needs and recommendations for the tourism industry’s economic reactivation and recovery moving forward. Participant instructions will be sent upon registration.
Tourism is San Diego’s second largest traded economy employing more than 194,000 people, or one in eight workers. The industry is also one of the largest economic engines in Baja’s, a region that welcomed over 28 million tourists and broke ground on a new hotel every 60 days in 2019. Together, San Diego and Baja California offer an accessible and vibrant cultural and culinary destination that has allowed our binational tourism industry to thrive.
Our goal is to get businesses back open safely, swiftly, and sustainably. An important aspect of restarting the tourism industry on both sides of the border, is binational coordination across private and public sectors and joint promotion of the region. Obtaining input from a diverse set of businesses across the tourism industry is extremely valuable in this effort and will help develop an economic framework and provide long-term strategies and best practices to ensure our economic viability as a binational region.
