How Panama Has Taken So Much Place In Her Heart.

Claudia, you chose to self-isolate in your home in Panama City. You told us that you had found a refuge there, a security but also a “favorite” where life is good, but also to meet endearing populations. Tell us about your Panama! (Hug Magazine)

Apart from the clichés, PANAMA is a small country by its size but BIG by the contributions it has made to the American continent and to the whole world.

The important thing is to resist, reorganize and think about the post-crisis.

Interview with Claudia Terrade, CEO of Quimbaya Latin America

Present in 11 Latin American countries, Quimbaya Latin America is facing the crisis linked to the coronavirus epidemic. After the repatriations, the DMC teams manage the postponements and cancellations by negotiating when necessary on a case-by-case basis with the partners. For Claudia Terrade, CEO, the important thing is to resist, reorganize and think about the post-crisis.

04/08/2020 Hug Magazine #36 – Is tourism immortal?

How does a DMC like Quimbaya position itself in this new era, and with what commitments for new tourism?

In 33 years of existence we have experienced several crises but never imagined a crisis of such magnitude. A great challenge presents itself to us.

Sustainability is now a matter of the short and medium term. A daily reflection was essential and each of our employees is called upon to participate in this reflection. Predicting tourism for years to come would be too pretentious, but good ideas are emerging. Rigor and good management will always be the basis of sustainability, but without respecting our working tools, which are the natural and human resources of the countries we visit, our job will no longer make sense.

Everyone must be responsible and sustainable but above all united.

Fair and quality interaction between the various stakeholders will be vital. Without relationships of trust based above all on respect for each other, no tourism business can operate. Social responsibility.
