The initiative seeks to facilitate the transit of travelers between one country and another in Latin America.
Within the framework of the ALTA Airline Leaders Forum, one of the most important events organized by the Latin American and Caribbean Air Transport Association, the Minister of Commerce, Industry and Tourism, María Ximena Lombana Villalba, endorsed the Proposal that seeks to unify biosafety measures for travelers who wish to visit various Central and South American countries.
The purpose of the initiative, as explained by the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism, is that international tourists can visit the countries of the region, without having to worry about complying with different regulations in each one of them.
The panel also included the ministers of tourism from Brazil, Gilson Machado Neto and Niels Olsen from Ecuador, who together with Lombana, managed to consolidate the supports of a first agreement that will allow to lay the foundations to unify criteria in the matter of biosafety measures.
Minister Machado Neto, indicated that in this sense a first step has already been taken between Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile and Argentina, and of course they are open to the arrival of new members such as Colombia.
