LCCI react to international travel return

London Chamber of Commerce and Industry has reacted to today's government announcement about foreign travel rules.

Chief Executive, Richard Burge, said:

“Clarity on the system the government will be using to recover international travel is welcome, and the ability to travel to and from some green list countries without quarantine will boost some London businesses involved in tourism and travel. But given the limited number of countries on the list we must be realistic that the boost will be somewhat minimal.

“We must also not lose sight of the role that business travel will play in the recovery of trade and our economy.  Whilst it is of course understandable that the government wish to protect the vaccination programme rollout, many businesses will feel there needs to be more focus on workable systems that allow for business travel to support the UK’s economic recovery.”
