UNWTO General Assembly’s 22nd Session to Take Place in Chengdu

UNWTO

The United Nations World Tourism Organization, the UN agency overseeing the promotion of responsible, sustainable and universally-accessible tourism, is to hold the 22nd of its biennial assemblies in Chengdu, Sichuan Province. Chengdu will be the second Chinese city to host the event, which previously came to Beijing in 2003. The 21st session, at which Chengdu was chosen by voting as the venue for 2017, was held in Medellin, Colombia. At the 22nd session, the organization will elect a new secretary general, discuss the latest global developments in the tourist sector, and announce a new blueprint for the tourism industry.  The Chinese National Tourism Administration (CNTA) and UNWTO will co-host a roundtable focusing on China’s “Belt and Road” initiative, and advocate to establish an alliance of cooperation in tourism among the countries and regions along the Belt and Road.  The theme of the assembly has been declared as “Tourism and Sustainable Development Goals – Journey to 2030”, and it will take place at the InterContinental Century City Convention Center in Chengdu from the 11th through the 16th of September, 2017; more information is available here.
