The information fell early this morning: Australia could close its borders by the end of 2022. We have heard the warm reaction of Guilloom Lyndon, the boss of Asia, in this announcement.
“This is not really surprising to us,” Guilmond Linden explains. Australian officials have been talking about it for months. In fact, I believe they are trying to stop the journey. Stories of Indian or Brazilian genres, managing epidemics in Europe, make sure these are not things that are guaranteed to Australians.
This serious position of the Australian Government is incomprehensible because it suggests that this target would have been closed almost 3 years before the return of a foreign tourist! If this is confirmed, the effects of the entire welcoming ecosystem will be dramatic on the target, as the entire economy of the tourism economy will be sacrificed.
“A disaster for our allies”
