Alongside Fuentes, minister Bartlett will examine the feasibility of creating the first tourism resilience barometer.

Work will be carried out alongside the Global Tourism Resilience & Crisis Management Centre (GTRCMC), itself founded by minister Bartlett.

Fuentes is the founder of the Tourism Optimiser Platform (Top), a highly specialised project and affiliate member of the UNWTO.

As an expert in governmental and institutional travel, he works to defined GITT, with the sole purpose of professionalising and standardising this sector.

Within this project, Fuentes has created the first institute to provide training to all stakeholders.
