[Call To Action]: Reopening global travel, tourism and economy

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every segment of the economy. Especially hard hit has been the travel and tourism sector, representing 10 percent of global GDP which decreased by 49.1%.

There is a very real risk that digital health passes could fail to deliver the anticipated public health, social, and economic benefits if they are not widely trusted and adopted by the public and universally accepted by airlines and border control agencies.

Also the physical flow of people will need to be supported by privacy preserving data sharing technologies to ensure physical distancing now and as key enablers for a safe and trustworthy future digital economy and society for all.

Through the ValueTrack framework we will be leveraging our leading position today related to privacy for health certificates and physical distancing to be adopted and implemented in the EU and rest of the world.

Call to action 1:

Together with organizations like the Good Health Pass Collaborative, Skyteam, Medicorps, Compo Software and SAS DNA Lab, an international pilot will be conducted to demonstrate interoperability between the EU Digital Covid Certificates and for example IATA Travel Pass based on the Good

Health Pass Principles and Blueprint and the innovative privacy implementation of the Dutch Covid Test App.

Call to action 2:

Together with organizations like Rotterdam The Hague Airport Innovation Foundation, Royal HaskoningDHV and Smart Distance Lab we will be demonstrating the leading role in innovation in safe and seamless traveling including crowd management and physical distancing towards the EU Entrepreneurship Summit and G20.
