Turism&Travel : Tourism's contribution to the global agenda - UNWTO address to the T20 ministers of tourism

Monday 22 February 2010

The ministry of tourism of the Republic of South Africa, with the support of UNWTO, is hosting a Tourism Ministers' Meeting (T20) under the theme “Travel and tourism: stimuli for the global economy” from February 22-24, 2010 in Johannesburg.

Tourism ministers meeting at the UNWTO General Assembly (October 2009, Astana, Kazakhstan) expressed a strong sentiment that tourism should be further mainstreamed in global economic decision-making.

Travel and tourism can make a valuable contribution to the economic recovery and can be an important pillar of the global efforts to unlock enhanced economic growth, infrastructure development, trade promotion, poverty eradication, and particularly job creation.

The T20 is a members-driven initiative with the support of UNWTO.
