Destination Competitiveness in a Post-COVID-19 World

This study seeks to enrich the destination competitiveness theory and knowledge. Practically this research can help advise the tourism industry and various stakeholders on revitalising their destinations. For example, it could help revitalise Hong Kong’s economy in which the tourism industry has long been its pillar industry but has come to almost a standstill now. The significance of the problem makes it so urgent for this project to provide needed guidance for revitalising the tourism industry and destination competitiveness in a post-COVID-19 world.

Environmental Communications: Interplay Effects between Heterogeneous Goal-framed Messages on Recycling Behaviors
