I urge caution, warns Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne


Secretary of State for Tourism Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne urged the French to be careful with their reservations and trips for the February vacation.

The virus is the permanent unexpected

'The virus is the permanent unexpected, the permanent uncertainty,' he warned BFM Business this Friday morning. 'I know its very uncomfortable and even a big problem for a sector like tourism, as it requires predictability to organize schedules according to reservations.'

We are at a time when certain indicators are rising

'Be careful, we are at a time when certain indicators are rising. We will take a closer look at this in a few days. I therefore urge caution. Given this uncertainty, we spent most of the time with ultra-load. Minute bookings adjusted, 'said the State Secretary for Tourism.

A few weeks ago the foreign minister invited the French, who had already booked for the February vacation, not to cancel.
