UNWTO logoThe role of the UNWTO has become more difficult and challenging than ever before in current times, with people looking for stability, unity and responsible solutions. Seven candidates are competing for the role of the new Secretary-General of the UNWTO general elections and the most deserving one will take over the responsibility from the current SG Dr. Taleb Rifai.

The elections will take place in Madrid, Spain on May 11, 2017. From the Republic of Korea, Ambassador Dho Young-Shim, with a remarkable career in tourism, is a potential candidate for the UNWTO head position. If she is elected, she’ll be the first Asian and a female to lead the global organization. To quote Dho Young-Shim, “I firmly believe there is great strength in unity. UNWTO’s core foundation embodies unity through tourism. There is also a duty of responsibility when tourism is a major economic driver within a country. Bringing more nations into the UNWTO, uniting together, we can make very real, measurable differences globally.” Handing the reins over to a new Secretary General is a huge responsibility in the capable hands of voting members of UNWTO.
