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 has taken important measures to keep the economy running despite the spread of the virus. However, there is still some catching up to do.
It must be ensured that the German economy does not falter as a result of the pandemic. If the economic situation continues to deteriorate, the government must pull out all the stops and take further appropriate measures – quickly and unbureaucratically – in addition to the instruments already introduced.


Strengthening economic life

Even the largest aid programme in the history of the Federal Republic cannot replace the normal economic activity. To avoid a recession, the restrictions must not last a day longer than absolutely necessary. The tightening of already withdrawn measures can only be ultima ratio and is only necessary in justified exceptional regional situations.


Ensuring smooth goods traffic

In the production of leisure vehicles, there are problems with the availability of parts and components, as supply chains are partially affected. Politicians are called upon to ensure the smooth movement of goods.


Tourism in times of corona

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 meet the necessary 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 that meets the requirements of the current situation.
