United Nations Secretary-General Calls for Steps to Help Tourist Industry Revive in a Green and Inclusive Way

 United Nations UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has urged for a green and inclusive tourism rebound in the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak. 

The UN Secretary-General expressed his optimism that the choices made at this Assembly will help to restore trust in travel and get the globe moving again in a safe manner, allowing emerging countries to benefit from sustainable tourism. 

From November 30 to December 3, the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) will convene its 24th General Assembly in Madrid, Spain. The UNWTO’s General Assembly is the organization’s major gathering and the venue for member states to adopt the organization’s work program and budget for the coming biennium (2022-2023). 

The worldwide tourist sector will likely lose $2 trillion in income in 2021 as a result of the coronavirus epidemic, according to the UN’s tourism body, which described the sector’s recovery as “fragile” and “slow.” 

In 2020, the same amount was lost, making it one of the worst-affected sectors by the healthcare crisis.
