How has tourism marketing changed in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic?
Prior to the pandemic, destinations marketed in a way that encouraged international and domestic travel through expensive, broad-reaching advertisements. Now that the pandemic has limited the opportunity for travel worldwide, destinations have begun marketing for post-pandemic times by encouraging those keen to travel to stay home and stay safe instead and plan their future trips. Though nation's tourism industries have been severely impacted by the pandemic, destinations understand the importance of managing the pandemic now and saving travel for when it is safe again. Therefore, destinations are employing best practice methods to keep their destinations at the forefront of people's travel plans by reminding them of the incredible beauty of the destination through videos and images, but reminding them to stay safe and save their travel plans for when the world reopens.

What social and economic benefits has the development of the Schengen region provided?
One of the primary benefits, both social and economic, is the free movement across borders. With free movement, individuals are able to travel and work more freely, allowing for the movement of people, ideas, culture and money. It makes travel and migration easier as the Schengen visa covers the entire region and passport travel agreements are the same throughout. The open borders also allows for easier movement of goods throughout the region, increasing trade abilities between nations. Additionally, the cost of border protection is significantly reduced as there is no need for passport checks at all points of entry.

What instigated the trade war between the United States and China?
President Trump has long believed in the importance of keeping jobs in the United States and bringing manufacturing jobs back to the US from China. Additionally, Trump has issue with China's trading practices and with their mismanagement of intellectual property. To encourage Americans to buy local and put pressure on China, Trump imposed significant tariffs on goods imported from China. This was met with retaliation from China with the belief that the United States was attempting to negatively impact China's economic growth and so started the trade war with continuous tariff increases on an ever-growing variety of goods. After months of increased tariffs, the conflict culminated in an agreement between the two nations to reduce the recently imposed tariffs and increase the number of imports and for China to strengthen their intellectual property regulations.
