Tourist Redeemer: The impacts of COVID-19 on the tourism sector in Brazil

Article published in the OECD

Luiz Gustavo Medeiros Barbosa, Executive Manager, at Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV) writes article for the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

The article explores the impacts of COVID-19 on the tourism sector in Brazil.
