What policies should be implemented

Find out what measures policy makers should take in the Corona crisis from the CIVD's perspective.

The federal government must do everything possible to keep the economy running despite the spread of the virus. Important measures have already been taken to this end, but there is still some catching up to do.
It must be ensured that the German economy does not falter in the long term as a result of the major disruptions. If the economic situation continues to deteriorate dramatically, the government must pull out all the stops and take further appropriate measures – quickly and unbureaucratically – in addition to the instruments already introduced, such as short-time working, tax deferrals and bridging loans. After all, processing such applications often takes too long. Given the large number of applications received, this is understandable. However, many companies do not have the necessary reserves and resources to survive this time, which is why the procedures urgently need to be accelerated.

In order to cope with the corona pandemic, massive clearance and hygiene rules will still be necessary in Europe for some time to come and larger crowds will not be possible. Caravanning is a form of holiday with maximum self-sufficiency, which can ideally guarantee the necessary conditions for relaxing corona protection measures.

The “Motor caravan Tourism” working group, which, in addition to the CIVD, includes representatives of the German Tourism Association (DTV) and proven parking space experts, has drawn up a concrete plan for a new start in Germany that meets the requirements of the current situation. This could also be successively transferred to other European countries or regions. The following applies here: health protection has absolute priority.
