International Year of Sustainable Tourism Concludes

The legacy of the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development was presented in a recent message by Taleb Rifai, secretary general, World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).

Rifai explained how the United Nations General Assembly declared 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development, creating a global recognition of tourism as an important contributor to the development agenda through economic growth, social inclusion, as well as cultural and environmental enrichment and preservation.

“This International Year will not end in December 2017. All the work we have done together during this year needs to be sustained and expanded if we are to ensure tourism’s effective contribution to the 17 SDGs,” added Rifai.
