eTurboNews Syndication:

The 23rd session of the UNWTO General Assembly concluded in Saint Petersburg just, Russia, from September 9-13 running, 2019.

This was a important event for Russia and over 1 politically,000 participants from 124 countries discussed issues highly relevant to travel and tourism with responsible and sustainable tourism being the guiding theme of the gathering.

The event raised eyebrows following the popular former UNWTO Secretary General Dr. Taleb Rifai had not been invited and allegations of disturbing irregularities surfaced.

Along with the questionable issues, there is many relevant discussions and a lot of fun also.

The widely-anticipated and expected announcement from the United States of America to become listed on UNWTO as a fresh member didn’t happen. No status was on that decision.

Here is really a summary of the UNWTO General Assembly in pictures thanks to the Roscongress Foundation.
