Project Summary

The project seeks to be a tool that guides the MSMEs in the tourism sector, first carrying out a study with real cases of APEC economies that allow determining the level of vulnerability to the various factors that may affect their continuity and operation, and a second part that presents a guide for risk management with the optimal use of ICTs that are led by the public sector, since risk management requires the establishment of structured, comprehensive and permanent actions that allow better decisions to be made in environments of uncertainty. 

This project is relevant, because the current context places us before a growing problem, therefore, saving and providing competitiveness to the tourism business fabric is vital for the integral recovery of the sector, in that sense, it is the opportunity to examine and transform aspects such as business risk management according to the characteristics of MSMEs in search of a resilient tourism economy and making adequate use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs).

Relevance

Relevance – Region: The United Nations recognizes the capacity of the tourism sector to generate changes towards sustainable economic, social and environmental development, therefore, it declared 2017 as the “International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development”. However, it is also recognized that the behavior of tourism is susceptible to various internal and external factors, since it is a transversal sector to others, which can make economic growth and benefits at a social level not constant. Despite this, with proper management, the need of other sectors and their connection with them can also position the tourism sector as a catalyst to achieve economic and social development in theeconomies, which allows the inclusion of the host population and to visitors, without excluding them due to their physical, economic or other condition.

We are currently in one of the worst scenarios in the world that has shown weaknesses in the health sector and economically in most economies. The spread of the COVID-19 virus declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) has caused urgent measures to be taken worldwide such as the isolation of people, the closure of borders, cancellation of flights, among others; this has also brought consequences to tourism sector, as indicated by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), which maintains that international tourism contracted by 65% ​​in the first half of 2020, this means a loss of 440 million international arrivals and around US $ 460 billion in export earnings from international tourism, listing it as an unprecedented drop in the history of tourism, putting millions of jobs as well as countless businesses at risk. “Asia and the Pacific, the first region to feel the impact of COVID-19 on tourism, was the hardest hit, with a 72% drop in tourists in the semester or a loss of 171 million compared to the same period last year”, indicates the UNWTO and is evidenced in Volume 18 of its Tourism Barometer.

Although some economies have been taking cautious measures to restart travel, the uncertainty about the evolution of the pandemic means that connectivity is still limited, in addition to fear on the part of travelers, which is a challenge for the sector tourism returning to operations; as stated in the report “Policy Brief: COVID-19 and Transforming Tourism”, the scenarios for the sector indicate that more than 100 million direct tourism jobs are at risk, most of them in micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) that they employ vulnerable populations such as women and young people, which is worrying because approximately 80% of all tourism companies are MSMEs.

Thus, the current context places us before a growing problem, but at the same time gives us the opportunity to consider and rethink about the level of vulnerability of tourism on a global scale caused by various factors that have been evidenced in the member economies of APEC and others, generating negative impacts in the short, medium and long term in the social and economic. Likewise, it has been found that in several economies the still existing digital divide, mostly in rural areas, has made it difficult to communicate in a timely and effective manner in the face of crises such as the current pandemic.

Therefore, saving and providing competitiveness to the tourism business fabric is vital for the integral recovery of the sector, in that sense, this crisis is an opportunity to examine and transform aspects such as business risk management according to the characteristics of MSMEs focused on a resilient tourist economy and making adequate use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs).

The project seeks to be a tool that guides micro, small and medium-sized companies in the tourism sector, first conducting a study with real cases of APEC economies that allow determining the level of vulnerability to the various factors that can affect the continuity and operation of the MSMEs, so that in a second part a guide is developed for risk management with the optimal use of ICTs that are in accordance with the characteristics of tourism MSMEs and also led by the public sector, since risk management requires that actions are established that are not isolated, but in a structured, comprehensive and permanent manner that allows better decisions to be made in environments of uncertainty, whether threats are generated or turned into opportunities.

Relevance – Eligibility and Fund Priorities: The project contributes to two funding priorities of the General Project Account (GPA) for 2020: “digital society and inclusive economic participation through the digital economy and technology” and “Women, SMEs and inclusive growth”. 

APEC recognizes the importance of MSMEs for the region, so point 20 of the 26th APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting, 2018 “The Chair's Era Kone Statement”, states “We underscore that it is crucial to improve the business environment for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) as part of our efforts to advance inclusive growth.” 

Also, in the 2019 APEC SME Ministerial Statement, “SME Financing and Digital Transformation in a Globalized Economy” that addresses topics such as “Digital Transformation for SMEs and Entrepreneurs”. Along these lines, this project encourages APEC economies to address and implement business risk management in tourism MSMEs in search of their resilience. 

Relevance – Capacity Building: Tourism is an activity that stimulates the economy at a global level, likewise, its vulnerability of micro and macro scope is recognized. The results of the study will be adaptable both for APEC economies as well as for other economies outside APEC, being a tool for the public and private sectors for the development of policies and projects for business risk management in the tourism sector. 

The current scenario indicates that Asia and the Pacific are the regions with the greatest drop in international tourism with 72%. APEC economies are dealing with the damage; this environment is configured as an opportunity to assess the level of vulnerability caused by various factors and provide a tool to guide MSMEs in economies such as Chile, Mexico, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam and other member economies. Of APEC, who can also contribute their experience, can replicate and disseminate it within economies, so it will include virtual trainings, as well as the full publication of the project, promoting the favorable and sustainable business environment towards a resilient economy.

Objectives

The objective of the project is to evaluate the level of vulnerability of tourism and impacts generated by scale of magnitude of the events in the tourism MSMEs of the APEC economies, which in turn allow to propose a tool through processes for risk management considering the importance and use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), which are consistent with the characteristics of tourism MSMEs and also led by the public sector in a structured, comprehensive and permanent way that allows better decisions to be made in environments of uncertainty towards an economy resilient.

Alignment

Alignment - APEC: The project contributes to the 2020 APEC priorities such as: “digital society and inclusive economic participation through the digital economy and technology”, “Women, SMEs and inclusive growth”, and in a general way to the priority “promoting innovation for sustainable growth”. 

It should be noted that in the 2016 Lima Declaration “Connecting Asia-Pacific Tourism through Travel Facilitation” the Ministers of Tourism of the APEC economies affirm in point 14: “We commit to fostering a competitive environment for tourism related MSMEs that are linked to Global Value Chains. We acknowledge that MSMEs promote tourism innovation and when provided with global market access, they contribute to sustainable and inclusive growth in the APEC region”. 

Likewise, in Host Economy Leader's Statement “Connecting People, Building the Future” Chile 2019, it is recognized that “APEC's work should continue to prioritize enabling MSMEs and start-ups to globalize, take advantage of new digital technologies, and access financing”, in addition, it states “APEC is richer for the feedback we receive from all sectors of society, including from ABAC. Greater efforts must be made to engage MSMEs, academia and civil society, so that our work remains purposeful and relevant for our people, especially younger generations”. Therefore, this project will involve the public and private sectors, the latter through the participation of MSMEs directly in the pilot training that will be developed to socialize the tool that allows them to make better decisions in the face of uncertainty scenarios and that contributes to improve your competitiveness. 

On the other hand, it contributes to the principles and proposals for action raised in the APEC High Level Statement, Viet Nam 2017:

·  Create competitive and enabling environments for all tourism-related enterprises, and particularly MSMEs, who are more likely to hire locally and generate jobs that are less skill-intensive, thus helping to promote inclusiveness in the tourism sector. MSMEs can also help promote innovation in tourism when provided with access to adequate finance, skills and global markets.

·  Travel and tourism stimulate entrepreneurship and the growth of MSMEs, supporting economic diversification and creating jobs across sectors. Tourism generally has a positive effect on poverty reduction and inclusive growth by creating jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities across a wide spectrum of skills and producing a positive impact on the development of remote areas.

Similarly, it adds with the APEC Tourism Ministers Statement On, Papua New Guinea 2018:

·  We stand committed to supporting the growth of the tourism sector in our economies as a means to encourage job creation, entrepreneurship, access to finance for MSME’s.

· We seek APEC Leaders’ consideration to include in the Leaders’ Declaration a statement that will focus on strengthening the competiveness of travel and tourism in the APEC region by encouraging tourism investment, employment opportunities, development of regional occupational standards to better match the needs of the labour market with various aspects of skills training and MSME’s support. 

Finally, given the current context in the Statement of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Tourism Working Group (TWG) on the Outcome of the Special online meeting of May 2020, it indicates as part of its recommendations that the APEC member economies:

· Planning relevant guidance amidst the health emergency in a coherent manner together with the efforts of the health sector to rebuild the confidence of visitors, as well as to support the economic viability of the micro, small-, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the travel and tourism sector.

· Exploring investment in human resources development and helping vulnerable segments or groups such as women, local community and MSMEs to build digital literacy.

Alignment – Forum: The issue raised is part of two priorities of the Tourism Working Group Strategic Plan 2020-2024:

· Digital Transformation: Objective facilitate the uptake of smart technologies across the tourism supply chain to meet and exceed visitor expectations, increase competitiveness, and expand the benefits of tourism to all segments of the population.

· Sustainable Economic Tourism Growth: Objective 1) Communicate the importance of tourism as an economic driver in APEC economies; and 2) Maximize the tourism sector’s contribution to employment, economic development, environmental protection and resilience, cultural and natural heritage preservation and inclusiveness to create economic and social benefits for business and communities in urban and rural areas.

Likewise, the project contributes to the provisions of the TWG Work Plan 2020:

· Through cross-fora collaboration, the TWG is looking at working on issues related to enhancing SMEs’ role in tourism and travel facilitation. TWG will also explore the economic and social impact of sexual exploitation in tourism.

Similarly, it can complement and reinforce the work led by Malaysia on “Developing Community Based Entrepreneurship in Rural Tourism Through Digital Empowerment” which seeks to “enhance the capacity of tourism-related MSMEs to develop CBE through digital empowerment and instil participants' knowledge and understanding on entrepreneurship in rural economic growth among the target groups. It will comprise of one-day workshop and handbook / final report production on guidelines and best practices from well - established tourism MSMEs around the region."

(300 pages approximately).

All activities for the development of this product will be virtual.

Outcomes: As part of the direct results of developing the project, which can be measured in the short term are the following:

·  Studies and cases analyzed on risk management and the use of ICTs, which will also generate a list of selected and specialized documents for consultation. Thus, the participation of all APEC member economies is promoted, exchanging relevant information that allows optimizing decision-making to improve the tourism sector.

·  Register and list of main risks that allow managing uncertainty in various scenarios. This encourages each APEC economy to identify and analyze the risks to which the tourism sector is most prone according to their realities and policies.

·  Risk management strategies, which will be shared through the guide in order to allow planning responses to the risks identified and prioritized.

Beneficiaries: The project participants are made up of the public sector of the APEC economies through their representatives and leaders of the tourism sector, likewise, the participation of the private sector will be promoted through tourism associations, in addition to organizations with experience in management business risk. Thus, everyone will benefit from the exchange of information and the acquisition of knowledge,., they will have access to the material for its dissemination and use within each economy.

Project beneficiaries can be specified as follows: 

· Public policy officials of the tourism sector: those in charge of formulating and executing policies, plans and strategies for the sustainable and resilient development of tourism, which involves the strengthening of micro, small and medium tourism enterprises in each APEC economy.

·  Representatives of MSMEs and tourism associations

· Academic and governmental organizations involved in business and tourism development: they will obtain knowledge and awareness about risk management for MSMEs and the use of ICTs as part of the strategies.

· The project promotes the participation of women during the development of the study.

The results of the project will contribute to the research of related international organizations such as the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), The World Economic Forum (WEF), the World Trade Organization (WTO), among others relevant and whose objectives are aligned towards a resilient tourism economy.

Dissemination

The final publication will be shared through emails attaching the link of the publication made on the official APEC website, to all participants in the development of the project, as well as, to the Committee on Trade and Investment (CTI), to the Tourism Working Group (GTT) and Small and Medium Enterprises Working Group (SMEWG). 

The target audience will be government officials and technical areas involved in the formulation and execution of policies for the tourism sector, as well as micro, small and medium-sized enterprises. Therefore, the results of the project will be accessible to all APEC economies, and it will be promoted that the economies share it with their database of MSMEs, associations, policy development officials, academic researchers and other international organizations involved in the tourism sector.

Official websites of Peru will also be used to disseminate the results of this project to the interested public. Peru will work to share such information with industry associations and other international organizations.

Gender

The Tourism Working Group (TWG) noted in 2018, despite the fact that there is a large representation of women as employees and entrepreneurs, gender gaps still continue around labor participation, roles and compensation. In this sense, the APEC economies also focus their priorities on closing this gender gap; within this framework, it is recognized that the tourism sector acts as a catalyst for the labor inclusion of women, especially in micro and small enterprises; considering digital media as tools to achieve true growth and inclusion in tourism.

According to the International Labor Organization - ILO in the study "International perspectives on women and work in hotels, catering and tourism" indicated that at a global level 55.5% of the workforce in the tourism sector was made up of women; being so, the work in tourism is the third labor force for women; on the other hand, in the study “Gender equality and youth employment: Travel & Tourism as a key employer of women and Young people”, carried out by The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) estimates that the labor representation of women in tourism it would increase by 36.5% by 2023. Therefore, it is recognized that tourism is an inclusive activity, generating a wide diversity of opportunities for women through the value chains that it creates in the destination's economy.

The project will seek to include in the questionnaire questions about the roles of women and their participation in the tourism MSMEs of the APEC economies.

This project is aligned with the "Skills, capacity building, and health, so women are physically capable of a range of economic pursuits and are prepared both educationally and technically for success in the workforce, in business, and in entrepreneurship” pillar promoted by APEC.

Difficulty finding the consultant to develop the project

POs will be requested to invite consultants to apply, in addition to sharing it with all APEC economies in order to have a list that allows candidates to be evaluated according to their experience.

Confusing answers in the questionnaire by APEC economies.

The survey will be designed in a simple and understandable format. If participation remains unsatisfactory in any way, the Project Supervisor will report this situation to the TWG Program Director and request that TWG delegates be re-circulated the survey. If this does not provide the desired results, the Project Supervisor will establish direct communication with the SCSC delegates who have not provided their response, to request their cooperation in responding to the survey.

Direct contact with all APEC economies in order to obtain their support and response to the questionnaire.

Duplication of tasks with other APEC sub-forums or international organizations

A preliminary work has already been carried out to identify that there is no duplication, since this project seeks that the risk management guide proposal complies with providing strategies according to the characteristics of MSMEs and the current context, which has generated a massive use of ICTs.

Delays or delays in the execution of activities to meet the deliverables.

In this regard, as all activities will be carried out virtually, constant communication will be maintained with the consultant in order to follow up and monitor the progress of each activity.

Little buy-in from economies to take up the Guide

It will include a guide for the development of the surveys and a virtual meeting to explain the objective of the project and the benefits of applying them to the reality of each APEC economy, for decision-making and future projects.

Constant change in the human team of the economies due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which can delay the fulfillment of the programming.

A database of the participating economies will be made with at least 3 representatives, in order to contact the second or third, only if the first representative no longer participates.

Linkages

This project includes information developed by various international organizations such as the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), The World Economic Forum (WEF), among others that one of their objectives is equal opportunities in economic development at a global level and the fight for economic recovery from the crisis caused by the pandemic generated by Covid-19.

Likewise, at the APEC level, coordination and exchange of information can be generated between groups such as the Committee on Trade and Investment (CTI), the Tourism Working Group (GTT) and the Small and Medium Enterprises Working Group (SMEWG).

Regarding the previous work, this project can be constituted as an update, improvement and adjustments according to the current context of the work "Tourism Risk Management, an Authoritative Guide to Managing Crises in Tourism" of 2006 of the APEC TWG.

Regarding the comparative advantage, although the Asia and the Pacific region have been among the first to feel the impact of COVID-19 on tourism, with a 72% drop in international tourists in the first half of 2020, due to the characteristics of their projects and joint work among APEC economies will allow a fluid and more efficient exchange of information.

Sustainability

On the other hand, the results are measured through questionnaires distributed during the study. The complete project will be available electronically on the APEC publication page that can be used as a tool for planning, management and capacity building focused on business risk management for MSMEs in all economies that need to use it.

Once the project is finished, a follow-up will be carried out at a minimum of 2 savings on the use of the guide in order to present it at the TWG meeting in 2023.
