Tourism transition and short-term rentals on French Presidency of the EU’s ‘to-do’ list
France took the reigns of the EU Presidency on 1 January 2022 with a busy programme that gives high priority to the management of borders, coordinated response to the coronavirus pandemic and the European economic recovery plan.
The French Presidency will aim to reach the highest possible level of vaccine protection in the EU and to ensure that all restrictions are based on objective criteria and do not disproportionally hinder free movement internally or travel to the European Union.
The French Presidency will concentrate on the recovery of the tourism sector and on strengthening its resilience to future crises by building on the European Commission’s transition pathway for the tourism document. The Presidency will also institute talks on the proposal for a regulation on short-term rentals.
