Brazil wins seat on UNWTO Executive Board

Published on : Friday, September 13, 2019

Brazil recorded two historic achievements at the 23rd General Assembly of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) in St. Petersburg. The country will take a seat on the Executive Board of the world’s leading travel industry during the 2020 and 2021 term.

 

It is also agreed that World Tourism Day 2020 will be celebrated in Mercosur, probably in Foz do Iguaçu. This is the first time that a joint application will host the celebration that has been in place for 40 years.

 

“The celebration of World Tourism Day will help spread Brazil’s integrated itineraries with neighboring countries in distant markets, such as China and Russia, which together send more than 200 million tourists to the world,” said Tourism Minister Marcelo Álvaro Antônio.

 

In 2019, the celebration will be held in New Delhi, India.

 

The minister also said that joining the WTO Executive Council means being in a trend-setting group and leading the main travel industry discussions.

 

“I am sure that Brazil will greatly help in the discussions and challenges we have to consolidate tourism as a platform for sustainable development, peace promotion and understanding among peoples,” said Zurab Pololikashvili, Secretary-General of the World Tourism Organization.

 

The WTO General Assembly is held every two years, with the participation of the largest industry leaders in the world.
