UNWTO Secretary General greets MTF 2016 via video message

UNWTO Secretary General Dr. Taleb Rifai greets the delegates of the 2016 Mekong Tourism Forum in Sihanoukville, Cambodia with a video message from Spain, Madrid. In his message he commended the GMS Tourism Working Group and the MTCO for picking the theme of authenticity for the Forum. He also applauded the participation of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council. “The declaration by the UN of 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development is a unique opportunity to advance the contribution of the tourism sector to the three pillars of sustainability—economic, social and environmental—while raising awareness of the true dimensions of a sector that is often undervalued,” Mr Rifai said.
