  • The OECD must ensure compliance with trade policy principles.
  • Transparency is required to monitor the trade restrictive measures introduced during the pandemic and ensure their progressive elimination.
  • Cross-border efforts should be promoted to facilitate data flow and increase digital resilience.
  • The OECD should work to develop guides and support programs for companies, with special attention to SMEs.
  • Strong coordination in the fields of economics, health and transportation is required for the identification of horizontal problems and the definition of comprehensive responses.
  • The importance of tourism as a key element for economic growth, social inclusion and transformation of society must be underlined.
  • The business impact of international travel restrictions needs to be analyzed.
