Published on : Wednesday, February 21, 2018

UNWTOHuman resources and capacity building to support tourism development have been at the centre of the collaboration between the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and Timor-Leste over the past years.

 

 

The successful conclusion of two projects implemented in Timor-Leste, was the main theme of discussion during the meeting held at UNWTO headquarters in Madrid between Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mr. Manuel Vong, and UNWTO Secretary-General, Zurab Pololikashvili.

 

 

The development of human resources has been central to the assistance that UNWTO has provided to the country through two projects of community based tourism under the STEP initiative (Sustainable Tourism for the Elimination of Poverty).

 

 

Minister Manuel Vong and UNWTO Secretary-General, Zurab Pololikashvili, also discussed how to improve the National Statistics System and strengthen the measurement of tourism’s economic impact in Timor Leste.

 

 

Over the past years, international tourism to Timor-Leste has been growing steadily. According to the latest UNWTO World Tourism Barometer, in 2017 international arrivals to the Dili Airport grew 16.5%, continuing the good results achieved in 2016.
