The Philippines DOT lobbying for support for hosting the UNWTO General Assembly in 2021

Published on : Tuesday, August 13, 2019

The Philippines’ Department of Tourism is lobbying for support in order to host the UNWTO General Assembly in the Philippines in 2021.

 

This call for support was made by Bernadette Romulo-Puyat, the secretary of the Department of Tourism of the Philippines during a reception hosted for foreign diplomats representing countries that are members of the UNWTO.

 

If the Philippines’ bid becomes triumphant, it will host the prestigious assembly during the celebration of the quincentennial anniversary (500 years) of the first circumnavigation of the globe in 1521 when Ferdinand Magellan’s Spanish expedition arrived in Cebu.

 

“It would be very timely for the Philippines to welcome this assembly to celebrate the first successful circumnavigation of the world. It was an event of great significance to mankind, a triumph in travel and exploration and one that has the Philippines in the centre of it all,” Romulo-Puyat said.
