UNWTO logoFor the impending Secretary-General’s post for the UNWTO, African countries have been asked to rally behind one of their own, so that he wins the coveted title.

 

It was stated by former tourism minister of Seychelles, Alain St. Ange, that an African would be better suited for the post, due to continent’s meager 5% representation to the global tourism movement even though it’s a key player of the tourism sector.

 
Alain St. Ange was speaking during a regional tourism expo in Kampala last weekend. He said that if he’s elected, his primary task would be to decentralize the organization by having branch offices in as many countries around the world as possible.

 

He joins three other candidates from Zimbabwe, Georgia and Brazil. He asked, “Why do we have the secretariat to UNWTO sitting only in Madrid, Spain without field offices?”
