The Philippines will be bidding to host the next UNWTO General Assembly in 2021, with other Asian countries showing their support for the bid.

 

The Department of Tourism (DoT) said that the Philippines will bid to host the event, which is held every two years, acquiring the support of the Joint Meeting of the United Nations World Tourism Organization Commission on Asia and the Pacific (CAP) and the Commission on South Asia (CSA).

 

This year’s 23rd UNWTO General Assembly will be held in September from 9-13 in Russia. During the conference, the host for the 24th UNWTO General Assembly will be announced.

 

Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said that hosting will give the Philippines the opportunity to showcase sustainability of its tourism programs.

 

“The Philippines is excited to host the UNWTO General Assembly in 2021, primarily to showcase the country’s sustainable tourism programs and actions and secondly, to give importance to the nation’s significant role in world maritime history and to draw highlight to our country’s discovery,” Romulo-Puyat said.
