Mass riots in France scare tourists away

The head of the Paris Tourist Office, Jean-Francois Rial, said that because of the wave of violence in Paris, there is mass cancellation of bookings. Statistics show that approximately 20-25% of international customers have canceled their trips to Paris and he expects the same numbers to be the same throughout France.

Rial also noted that about 15% of American tourists have already canceled from trips to France, which deals a serious blow to the country's tourism industry. He noted that since the beginning of the year, the number of tourists from the United States in Paris has grown by 25%, which partially compensated for the absence of Russian and Chinese tourists.

Jean-Francois Rial added that such incidents scare away American and Japanese tourists, because as they are historically the most sensitive to security issues.

Recall that large-scale protests and pogroms in France began as a result of the events that took place on June 27, when a 17-year-old teenager died during detention. The police reported that he did not follow the instructions of law enforcement officials. Charges have been filed against the shooter.
