About the Open Letter on Travel and Tourism

It is undeniable that in spite of its growing relevance and proven contribution to GDP (3% to 5% worldwide), jobs (7% to 8% of all jobs) and exports (30% of the world’s exports of services), Travel and Tourism still lacks due political and economic recognition.

In this framework, UNWTO and WTTC have decided to join hands in their common goal of mainstreaming Travel and Tourism in the global agenda and position tourism as a driver of economic growth and development.
