UN Sec Gen Praises UNWTO


 

 

”Tourism has proved one of the leading ways for the least ‎developed countries to increase their participation in the global economy”, said ‎United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, during his first visit to UNWTO ‎and Spain as Secretary-General.‎

The Secretary-General expressed his support for key UNWTO programmes such as ‎ST-EP (Sustainable Tourism – Eliminating Poverty) and its contribution towards ‎achieving the UN Millennium Development Goals of fostering sustainable development ‎and reducing poverty. He also congratulated UNWTO’s Global Code of Ethics for ‎Tourism as the framework for the responsible and sustainable world tourism.‎

‎“Tourism is the peoples’ building block for global peace and cultural understanding. ‎When approached in a sustainable manner, travel for recreation can also help drive ‎economic growth and alleviate poverty”, Mr. Ban Ki-moon said, underscoring UNWTO’s ‎relevance to the broader work of the UN.‎

The UN Secretary-General highlighted UNWTO’s work on developing and ‎implementing strategies to face the ‎changing climate conditions and to take preventive ‎actions for future effects, as well as to ‎mitigate tourism’s environmental impacts. “I look ‎forward to the presentation of your conclusions at the UN’s conference on climate ‎change in Bali this December”, he said, referring to UNWTO’s international ‎conferences on Tourism and Climate Change in Davos (Switzerland) and in London ‎‎(UK), to be held later this year.‎

Mr. Ban Ki-moon was greeted by UNWTO Secretary-General Francesco Frangialli, ‎senior officials and Mr. Pedro Mejia, Secretary of State for Tourism and Trade, ‎representing the Spanish government.‎

The Secretary-General stressed UNWTO’s mission to mobilize the vast tourism ‎industry in the fight for peace, for human rights, for sustainable development, which is ‎also a fight against global warming, and against extreme poverty in the world. Mr. ‎Frangialli also informed Mr. Ban Ki-moon of the latest situation in the international ‎tourism sector and the prospects for 2007 and beyond.‎
